Paddy Casey
Born in Dublin Paddy quickly realised music was his calling. From 11 years old he was on the streets busking and singing. After 12 years hard graft his work paid off and he was approached by an A&R scount from Sony. After securing some demo money from Sony Paddy began to record the tracks he was working on. These works would later go on to be released in the form of the 1999 album ‘AMEN(So Be It)’. Following this release Paddy securing touring spots with big name acts like The Pretenders, R.E.M, Ian Brown and Blondie to name a few! Fast forward to 2003 and Paddy recorded ‘LIVING’. The success of this record was truely amazing! It became one of the biggest selling albums ever in Ireland. The following years saw Paddy tour Living extensively! His next album ‘The Secret Life Of’ was released in May 2012. Paddy has been steadily touring over the last few years making stops along the way in Australia, Europe and the US. Paddy is surely going to put in a fantastic performance at this years Paddys Music Fest!

Heroes In Hiding
Heroes In Hiding are one of Irelands most promising young bands at the moment. Following the release of their debut EP ‘Hush’ in March 2014, they were the only Irish act to play at the inaugural Secret Solstice International Music and Arts Festival in Iceland in 2014! If 2014 was the year Heroes In Hiding landed onto the scene, 2015 was the year they conqoured it. They began the year being selected for the Whelans Ones To Watch festival in January. The band went back into the studio and recorded their next EP ‘Today I Mean It’. Following its release the band performed at Barn Dance, Forbidden Fruit, Indiependence, Castlepooluza and Electric Picnic. After a steller performance on the festival circut the band had a completley sold out show at the Opium Rooms in late November. The band are currently back in the studio preparing their next release. We cant wait to hear their performance on the 17th of March!

Los Paddys de las Pampas
“North Clare meets South America for a dance!”
Los Paddys music is fusion of Celtic roots with South American rhythm. This sound is completley unique and what makes the band so special! Comparisons have been made of the band with Kila and The Poques due to their fantastic on stage presence. The band has an impressive rotating membership of muscians from Ireland, Argentia, France, South Africa and more. Los Paddys are no doubt going to put on a performance to remember!
