PADDY KEENAN, the great piper and former Bothy Band member, returns to The Crane Bar, Sea Road, on Wednesday at 9pm.
Paddy was born in Trim, Co Meath. His family were musicians and Travellers. His father and grandfather were pipers. He spent some time in London where he got into jazz and blues. In 1974 he joined forces with Matt Molloy, Dónal Lunny, Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill, Mícheál Ó Domhnaill, to form The Bothy Band - one of the finest trad ‘supergroups’ to emerge in that period. Tommy moved to America in the 1990s and now lives in New Hampshire in an old farmhouse.
