Paddy Keenan was born into a traveler family steeped in traditional music. His open-fingered style of playing can be traced directly from the style of such great Travelling pipers as Johnny Doran, as well as that of his own father and grandfather.

In the 1970s Paddy was a founding member of the legendary Bothy Band, and his virtuosity on the pipes, combined with the ferocity of his playing, made him, its driving force. Since the break-up of The Bothy Band, Paddy has pursued a solo career, playing festivals and concerts all over the world. He has composed and arranged music for several film projects; most recently, he's been working on a documentary film in Mali.

In 2002 Paddy was awarded the TG4 (Irish language television) Traditional Music Award (Gradam Cheoil) as Traditional Musician of the Year. This is the most prestigious award given in the genre of Irish traditional music.

Generally acknowledged as the most accomplished uilleann piper performing today, Paddy is certainly one of the most brilliant musicians of his generation.
