“My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Paddy a few years ago at the Heritage Center and it was incredible. We’ll be there.” J.L. This was in the Shamrock American Room at the Irish American Heritage Center in 2012. He was joined by Eugene Durkee on guitar and Laurence Nugent on flute. Photo here is from the finale, where he was also joined by (L to R) Kevin Henry, Maggie Henry Healy, Patrick Cannady and Karen Cannady.
Here is Paddy Keenan with The Bothy Band in 1977. A supergroup featuring Paddy, along with Matt Molloy, Kevin Burke, Donal Lunny, Michael O’Domhnaill and Triona Ni Domhnaill. They invented the high-velocity fusion band sound that you still hear today at Milwaukee IrishFest and other festivals. There was nothing like them before.
