Lahinch, County Clare

Paddy Mulcahy is a Clare based musician who lives and writes in Lahinch
Co. Clare. He is heavily interested in community music and in the last few years ran
the local music youth project in North Clare and was awarded volunteer of the year in 2008 by the Clare Youth Service for his work.
During this time he also ran the music stage at the Ennistymon Family Festival
for which he was awarded “best artist management” by A.O.I.F.E. (Association of Irish Festival Events)

He has also been awarded a masters Ethnomusicology from the Irish World
Music Academy at the University of Limerick and subsequently
released 2 albums mixing Irish and Kurdish music which he toured all over
Ireland and Europe with the group "NoLand Folk".

This will be his first album totally dedicated to his own work and he has assembled
a diverse group of musicians and personalities for the task of recording the aptly named "Trouble Instigator".

The album mixes folk music and classical arrangements with gritty lyrics that are masked in melody. Musicians include violinist Fiona Lucia Mc Garry, backing singers, Julie and Branwen Kavanagh, Electric guitarist David Knox and the rhythm section of Liam O Boyle and Conor Tuohy. The theme of the album is social upheaval and songs range from gothic and gospel description of a mythical Limerick city to a translation of a Victor Jara nursery rhyme. The song “Trouble Instigator” itself is focused on various agitators throughout history and their race against time to fulfill their task against certain impending doom. With a back round in world music, many of his influences come from around the world including Serge Gainsborough (France), Victor Jara (Chile) and Leonard Cohen (Canada). He will be embarking on a long Irish and European tour from March to promote the album and will be playing concerts everywhere from Berlin in the east to Ennistymon in the west over the coming months.
