Did you play in a band called Blues house back in the early days.
When we were all in lockdown I had 3 live acts I wanted to see 1) Dylan (again) 2) Springsteen and 3) Yourself. Amazing I got the opportunity to see you in Dunlewely for the Saturday night performance (and got a signed album + photo). It was an amazing gig, with life-affirming performances. Haven't been able to stop trying to play Arthur McBride since. Looking forward to the chance to see you again.
Heard the interview on Rte at Claire Byrne's show. I follow you from northern Spain since I found a 2nd hand Back To The Centre record at a Temple Bar old record shlp in late 90's. I was glad to hearing from you and hope to see you in good form at the Vicas St gig.

Just heard your new album "Maybe So". Really great and moved me a lot. This is the music that accompanied my life particularly intensively and emotionally in the 80s and 90s.
Thanks for that.
I switched back to vinyl. It would be nice if this album would also be released on vinyl.
Greetings from Diekholzen (Germany)
Thank you for a fantastic evening at the National Opera House in Wexford yesterday evening. Been waiting for the opportunity to listen to your live performance since the Hard Station days and you certainly didn’t disappoint. You even gained a new fan in my wife Marta who was extremely impressed by your musicianmanship and singing.
You were in great form at the Town Hall Galway on Friday. I think “If it wasn’t for the crocodiles. I would sleep out in the woods”
Is a great line. Hope you’ll be back soon.
Being a PB fan is always full of surprises. I was watching some Youtube videos and I decided to play "The Lakes of Pontchatrain" and I look up and... "Wait... is that the guy from Vulfpeck!?!?" Keep the surprises coming.
All the best,
When things get something back to normal, We'd love to see you on the West Coast. I can't believe I missed you at Yoshi's last time you were here.
Hope you enjoy the show as much as we will.
I absolutely adore your songs = The World is What You Make It, Nobody Knows and Nothing But The Same Old Story. I find I connect with the lyrics on a deeper level. I wonder is it me or was there an intention on your part to have an esoteric aspect within those songs in specific? I also find that in other Irish artists songs.
If my intuition is correct, I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the testing times we have faced these past two years.
Best wishes to you and yours,
Many times , over many years I meant to contact you .I love your music .In 1978-1979 I worked in Altnagelvin and met your late mother .She was so very very proud of your music and what you were trying to achieve ( at that time). .I remember her as a beautiful , gentle lady who clearly adored her son .
Happy memories of that time and meeting your lovely mother .
Best wishes for your future health and happiness .
A few months ago, I came across your music on Spotify- specifically “The Lakes of Pontchartrain.” I’m familiar with the song, but wow- loved your rendition. I started looking through all your work, and I’ve realized that only a fraction of your music is on Spotify, the streaming service I use.
Do you have any plans to release any more albums for streaming?
Lastly, I just want to tell you that you’ve really inspired me to take my playing and singing to the next level- you’re a legend. Wish I could come see you, but I live in Louisiana. I’ll keep an eye on your tour dates.
Thanks very much for a musical masterpiece in Ballymaloe last Friday night. Great to have met you after the.gig.
Hi Paul, lovely to hear u being interviewed by Miriam O'Callaghan this morning, Sunday 1st May - a great start to summer!:) Just downloaded new album (congrats) and bought ticket for Kilkenny gig, 18 June. Best wishes form a fellow singer, Aidan,
Hi Paul just wanted to say what a fantastic new album me and dad enjoying ,the fantastic music you make hope you are well
Hi Paul, I was just thrilled to see last night that you have reissued the album The Green Crow Caws. It is a real favourite of mine, and it was great to be able to buy it online. I have an old scratched LP which came from my mother's collection. It still plays--just! But the download is a real treat to have, and sounds better than ever. (My vinyl copy of Hard Station is still in perfect condition, and enjoyed frequently of a Friday evening here in Redcastle!) Thank you so much for all your wonderful work and talent, we have always been huge fans in this house. I hope you and yours are keeping safe and well. Beir bua agus beannacht
Hi Paul, what a Show! We were overwhelmed by the power , emotion and obvious fun you seemed to have, too.. Yes, it was us in the Restaurant. and front row. We were so happy to see you and your wife there in good health and we did not want to disturb your privacy. I am sure we come over again to see you somewhere soon. All the best to you and Mary! Beate and Uwe
Hi Paul, we're listening to your music since more than 30 years and always wanted to see you live. As we never saw concert announcements in Germany, I finally bought tickets for the Athlone show as a christmas gift for my wive back in 2019. COVID let to postponements and we're now finally ready to fly to Dublin on Friday this week. I hope you're recover soon from COVID and you're able to play Athlone. We cannot wait another 20 years! All the best and good health soon!
Hi Paul, just to say that 'the lakes of Pontchartrain" is probably one of my favourite songs of all time.. I mean your version. Out of curiosity, I had a look online to see if there was an original version but I couldn't find one. But anyway, if there were, I'm sure it wouldn't be equal to yours, because it's not only the song or melody. but the way you use your voice, so meloncholically and emotionally. ( I feel that those two adjectives don't really express what I mean ,😂) but I can't find the right ones.). Anyway, your songs.and voice are amazing. Thanks a million for being in my life!!!! ❤️
Can't wait for tonight's concert at the Festival Hall. Those Johnstons' days seem very far away now but I was 17 and am now 70 and still loving the music and my husband of 51 years who introduced me to it.
So pleased to see you are on tour this year in the Transatlantic Sessions. I am hoping to get to the Bridgewater Hall show and introduce my wife to your great music. Any chance you will perform that great song, Crazy Dreams there?
Hi Paul ,
Hello Paul, thanks for including guitar tabs on this website, very useful.
Dear Mr. Brady,
