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.
