2017 – Gigs, Ceilidhs, Barn Dances, Festivals…Here We Go!

Paddy's Whiskers Ceilidh at Higher Eggbeer Devon

So…our New Year’s Eve Hootenanny gig at The Boathouse, Paignton sold out months in advance. We had a great crowd of friends and fans old and new, to celebrate the start of 2017…and we are booked for NYE 2018…it’s not too early to reserve tickets!

We’ve had a scattering of ceilidhs and barn dances over the winter months, including a lovely gig for Kerry and James at Muddifords Court, Cullompton.

And then last Friday we had the madness that is St.Patrick’s Day. In the morning we played live on BBC Radio Devon. You can see a video here

4.8 thousand hits and rising…..

We’d have dressed up if we knew he was gonna bring a camera! That’s our boy Blake on whistle.

In the evening..our fifth year celebrating at The Snooty Fox…playing all our favourite Irish jigs and reels, songs and tunes. What a night. The venue was rammed! The crowd rocked!

And so now the season really starts. Paddy’s Whiskers are fully booked until the autumn – playing gigs, ceilidhs, barn dances, festivals, weddings and parties across Devon, Cornwall and the South West. We are next at The Boathouse, Paignton on April 23rd…a family friendly afternoon gig….Check out our “Gigs” page for a full listing.

We are particularly looking forward to returning to OffGrid Festival in Exeter on August 10th…we’ll be launching the party with a massive ceilidh, and then running fiddle and whistle workshops throughout the weekend. Check out this year’s promo video for the event featuring the tune “The Lark In The Morning” by Paddy’s Whiskers:
