Welcome friends!

One of New England's most popular Celtic duos!  

Hidden within the mountains, hills and valleys of Berkshire County, MA is a Celtic folk duo of pure musical energy; inspired by the many facets that make up the culture, lands and people that are the living embodiments of the music they love.  

As their gypsy hearts shine through, the music takes you on a journey all your own. 

Solid rhythmic guitar, sweet and powerful fiddle, smooth lively vocals and harmonies, haunting penny whistle and bodhran. 

They smoothly blend their collective rock, classical, gypsy, folk and Celtic influences into a high energy, heart throbbing, foot-stomping mix. 

Whether in your local Pub, or on one of many Festival stages such as East Durham Irish Fest,  Irish2000,   the Great American Irish Festival,  Boston Irish Music Fest,  Bennington VT Irish Fest, the John Boyle O'Reilly Irish Music Fest,  Pittsfield Ethnic Fair and The James McNally Wilson Irish Music Festival to name a few... 

Come see for yourself! 

From classic-Irish and Scottish ballads to Celtic-laced Bluegrass, and raging and politically charged rebel tunes to American folk songs- 

Rakish Paddy takes you on a wild ride of the soul!
