PADRAIG JACK

Facebook event

Born and raised on the largest Aran island, the music of bilingual artist Padraig Jack is influenced by his surroundings as much as it is by James Taylor, Van Morrison, Paul Brady and The Eagles. While he has had plenty airplay on RTE Radio 1, iRadio, Raidió na Life and is practically part of the playlist on RTE Raidió na Gaeltachta, Padraig’s live shows are developing his reputation as a singer and songwriter of substance in both English and Irish. He has thus far opened for The Saw Doctors, Donal Lunny, Mick Flannery, The 4 of Us, John Spillane and has appeared at the Westport Bluegrass Festival, SOMA, Shorelines, Skibbereen Arts Festival and Electric Picnic. Padraig recently sold-out The Crane Bar in Galway and the Cobblestone venue in Dublin in what was his first headline show in the capital.

With 4 Gradaim NÓS Award nominations in early 2018 (including both Song and Artist of the year) Padraig won second prize at the Pan Celtic National Song contest in 2018 and also had a song feature in an RTE 1 television documentary. Padraig is currently recording his debut EP with John Reynolds (Sinead O’Connor, Damien Dempsey) with plans to release it in spring 2019.
