Irish Traditional Music

Paddy & Pat

Accordionist Paddy O’Brien is regarded by serious players and collectors of Irish traditional music as one of the tradition’s most important repositories; in a career that spans nearly forty years, he has accumulated nearly 4,000 compositions—jigs, reels, hornpipes, airs, and marches, including many rare and unusual tunes. His collection, all the more remarkable because it is stored in his head, is the result of many years of careful listening, diligent practice, and sharing tunes with people for the sake of the music itself.

Born in Dublin of parents from Wexford, Pat Broaders began playing traditional Irish music at the age of 8. He attended the Chatham Street School of Music where he began on the whistle and later moved to the uilleann pipes under the tutelage of the world renowned uilleann piper, Leon Rowsome. He also studied pipes with Tommy Reck and was influenced by pipers Liam OFlynn, Willie Clancy, and Matt Kiernan. In 1988, Pat began playing the bouzouki. Pat relocated to Chicago in 1991 and has been actively involved in the Irish music community ever since. He has been working with Norway’s Secret Garden for the last 12 years and has toured the world and recorded with them as their uilleann piper and whistle player.
