Described as “one of the freshest sounds in Irish music” by fRoots, multi award winner Pádraig Rynne is a virtuoso musician, prolific composer and is regarded as one of the finest concertina player in Irish music today. With an MA in Music Technology and with a passion for experimenting in diverse genres, Pádraig is recognized for his refreshing explorations into the Irish tradition and for his ground-breaking band NOTIFY, described by the New York Echo as “cinematic in scope”.
Pádraig has performed with fellow County Clare fiddler Tara Breen since 2009 and released a duet album with her in 2020 with accompaniment by guitarist Jim Murray called “Nasc” which the Irish Times review stated “Nasc holds a raft of sparkling new tunes and judiciously chosen borrowings. Generous of spirit and wide-open arms, this is an album to savor, often and long.” The three are now touring the U.S. and Ireland.
