Padraig's People

Return to Previous Page

Led by Padraig’s powerful vocals, Padraig’s People breathe new life into old Irish favourites. Performing a mix of energetic jigs and reels and well-known Irish songs, the band is the perfect choice for an Irish wedding or family celebration.

" Mesmerising vocals and high-energy tunes set the party rocking! "

A guitar/vocals and accordion/whistles duo creates a fine atmosphere at small events. Add cajon and djembe drums to give a real kick to the sound – then throw in virtuoso fiddle and you have all the ingredients for a brilliant Irish party. The band is available as a duo, trio or full four piece band.

On the road since 1995, Padraig’s People have been delighting audiences up and down the UK for two decades. Rest assured – your Irish party music is in safe hands with these experienced professionals! For larger events, the band can bring three “River Dance” style Irish dancers who showcase Irish dancing, teach the audience simple dance steps, then mix with the crowd to really get the party going.
