The Tumbling Paddies

The Tumbling Paddies

The Tumbling Paddies are a young, talented and energetic six-piece band from Co. Fermanagh, Ireland. They have taken the music scene by storm over the past four years with their catchy original songs and distinctive take on well-known cover songs. They have created their own unique Trad/Pop sound that blends Irish folk music with modern country music influences.
The band consists of Gareth Maguire (lead vocals, guitar, banjo), Ryan McGovern (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Ciaran McElroy (vocals, accordion, keyboard), Conor McManus (vocals, bass guitar), Darragh O'Reilly (vocals, drums, percussion) and Niall Murphy (vocals, fiddle, whistle). They met at school and started playing music together as a hobby. They soon realized that they had a great chemistry and a passion for Irish folk music. They decided to form a band and named themselves The Tumbling Paddies, after a traditional Irish dance move.
The band's musical style is influenced by artists such as Derek Ryan, Ed Sheeran, Mumford and Sons and The Dubliners. They combine traditional Irish instruments, such as the banjo, the accordion and the fiddle, with contemporary pop elements, such as electric guitar, keyboard and drums. They also incorporate elements of rock, country and rap into their songs. They sing in both English and Irish, and often switch between the two languages within the same song.
