Special guest 2017 Paddy McMenamin

We are delighted to announce that our guest musician for the 2017 Seamus Grant Weekend is renowned Glenfin fiddle player Paddy McMenamin.

The part-time farmer from the Glenfin Gaeltacht is a self taught fiddler who as a child picked up his tunes from musicians who called to his house and from his Father Paddy ‘Neil’ an accordion and fiddle player and his Mother Rose Anne, a singer who also played the Jew’s harp.

Paddy launched his debut album in 2016
‘Paddy McMenamin and Friends’.

This is a live CD which showcases the unique style of Paddy’s musical talent.
