Paddy Glackin was the original fiddler of the Bothy Band when they were original known as Seachtair. He has etched a reputation as one of our premier fiddlers, steely yet divinely delicate. He is Dublin born but adopted his father’s Donegal stylings and has taken a unique route from 1973 All-Ireland fiddle champion to the groundbreaking experimental-trad treasure Hidden Ground with Jolyon Jackson in 1980, not to mention performing with minimalist icon John Cage, and coming full circle of sorts with his old peers of the 1970s in LAPD. Dónal Lunny: What can you say about this man? Emmet Spiceland, Planxty, The Bothy Band, Moving Hearts, Mulligan Records, producer, arranger, curator, soundtracker, wisecracker and bouzouki icon. A true artist and a phenomenal collaborator, Dónal has nurtured Irish music for many decades. He is constantly pushing it forward and with no less gusto today than in the hey-day of the seminal bands he was a member of throughout his career. –
