Paddy Kerr grew up in Sligo
on the west coast of Ireland. He first started music on the tin whistle, being taught by the great Kevin McTernan
, before moving on to the Bodhrán. Paddy's style embraces modern techniques without losing the more simple rhythms that work so well within Irish traditional music. His tonal and rhythmic understanding of the instrument are also greatly influenced by his bouzouki playing, the instrument with which he is more associated with today. He has played/toured with, Malin Head, Cian, Na Dorsa, Breda and Cora Smyth Band Bridge Street, Riverdance
, Solas, Michael McGoldrick to name a few.
