Paudie O'Shea has been playing a mix of trad, irish, folk, rock and contemporary music for over eight years. Coming from a musical family originally from Cahersiveen Co Kerry, Paudie takes inspiration from the great Irish and folk music legends such as Luke Kelly, Christy Moore, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash and also likes to cover contemporary artists such as U2, Coldplay, Oasis, The Kooks and many more. His talent has taken him around the world, playing venues in Hawaii, California, Boston, Melbourne, Sydney, Abu Dhabi, Edinburgh, London, Liverpool, Manchester and all around Ireland.
Guitarist and singer, Jack Badcock (Co. Kilkenny) and multi-instrumentalist, Ciaran Ryan (Brechin, Angus) are two of the younger but well known musicians on Edinburgh’s traditional music scene.
They met while playing together in sessions round Edinburgh and soon formed a tight duo and became busy gigging regularly around the city.
Stomp your feet to Ciaran’s expressive banjo playing accompanied by Jack’s syncopated, percussive guitar style. Close your eyes and listen to Jack’s emotional songs of love, war and social comment beautifully complimented by Ciaran’s fiddle and mandolin accompaniment.
