Years ago, in what seems like another lifetime, I was in a folk trio in Dublin called the Ryecatchers (with Paddy Finney and Sandy McClintock) and we did a small tour with the Johnstons and Sweeney’s Men. After the last gig in Limerick, there was a party for us all at Mick Moloney’s house, and I remember to this day that you sang at the piano a lovely song that you had just written called ‘Brilliant’ or ‘Brilliance’. Did you ever record that song?
It was very good to meet you again at the Vicar Street concert celebrating the 40th anniversary of your album with Andy Irvine. Your music has been a constant source of enjoyment to me and my family over these many years.
What a beautiful gig last night .... I found it very emotional and touching ..... even without us all being together your music moves the soul. Thank you and much love xx
Just want to say - really enjoyed ure concert tonight - brilliant to hear live music in any form
No way to send feedback
concert hall. Well done it cannot be easy.
Thanks for the music, all the best,
story of it. I plan to play it at my next NYC gig.
Keep going and keep making great music you have a new (much belated fan for life)
First let me start off by saying I am a huge fan of your music and your approach to your instrument. I bought your instructional video a few years ago and have studied it intensively but I am hungry to learn more.
Do you, by any chance, run Skype lessons? I would be really interested in learning directly from the master if you were up to it. Alternatively do you have Tab charts of your work.
It is really hard trying to work out your tunings and arrangements by watching youtube vids of your work let alone unlocking the subtleties you employ in your arrangements. As you might appreciate resources for learning Irish music are a little thin in the antipodes.
I am having a crack at Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore at the moment and as far as I can tell you are using a drop D tuning. Is this correct?
Any way thanks for the years of pleasure I have had listening to you play. I hope all is well in your world and you are thriving in these interesting and challenging times.
All the best
Paul, decided to listen to 'Working at Christmas' on playback today - don't care that it's only November, it's been a tough year. Underrated song. Take care, Bill
I think I tried to post this before, but I don’t think I was successful.
Paul - many , many thanks for your session in the NCH last Saturday night - just magic - pity you could not hear us clapping
Paul I regret I missed your NCH concert, are there any plans to make it more widely available? PS We also being from Derry used to holiday in Bundoran in the 60s, I think our parents were friendly. What hotel[s] did you play in there? Many thanks. John

Hi Paul - tuning in tonight from Newbridge really looking forward to the show.
Hi Paul, I hope you are keeping well! Just bought tickets to your Belfast show in March for my sister's 23rd Birthday. Both big fans and can't wait! Great to have something to look forward to in these times.
Listening now to Arthur McBride all these years from from THAT album, I am struck by just how perfect the vocal, guitar, arrangement and recording is. A very rare thing indeed. For someone who reveres great performances this is one of the greatest. Very special.
Just Discovered You Paul after all these years listening to Arthur Mcbride now, Learned about the Dubliners and as well as Andy Irvine who I know you played with. I found Dervish and Cathy Jordan and Elinor Shanley. I am a professional musician myself this Covid hit us hard but we still survive while others do not. I have toured the World all except Ireland (my loss). I met Peggy Seeger at a festival last year and played Erin Gro Mo Chroi with her and learned the
Hope you and your family are well Paul during these hard time. Looking forward to Castlebar gig .
Hi Paul - Ive just ordered the DVD Irish Traditional but I read somewhere that you sometimes play with your guitar mic'd up. I just wondered what mics do you use. Stay safe and hope we have live music back shortly
What were the instruments used to play "Eat the Peach" at the beginning of the film Eat the Peach?
Just wanted to say thank you Paul for the wonderful e-mail for my dad on his birthday, he really was so surprised , hope to be able to come and see you performing in the very near future
