Patsy O'Brien

Hailing from Cork in the south of Ireland, award-winning songwriter and much sought-after guitarist Patsy O’Brien is renowned for his ability to meld songwriting and guitar styles seamlessly.

As well as supplying the driving guitar rhythms on Celtic/World Music diva Eileen Ivers' last European tour, and frequently treading the boards and collaborating with many giants of the Celtic/World music scene (Paddy Keenan. Cathie Ryan among them), Patsy's songwriting reflects a strong interest in roots Americana as well as Jazz influences.

“Wow wow WOW…. Patsy played last night at the Coaldale Schoolhouse and it was literally one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. What an engaging performer he is on top of his wonderful songwriting and knock-your-socks-off guitar playing….experiences like these are rare–this may sound like hype but this is the real deal.”

“, stylish…outstanding singer guitarist”

"Falls in the void between Van Morrison,
Robbie Robertson and Jethro Tull”
