John-Paul Patton

I am a poet, vocalist and musical experimenter, I am exploring a wide range of instruments, mainly Clairseach and guitar but also playing with fiddle, mandolin and bouzouki and wish to learn basics of these. Also play a bit of Double Bass and Saxophone, both of which were common in 19thC trad music I gather 🙂

I am in the process of putting together a band to explore psychedelic folk, Horslips meets Hawkwind kinda thing and rooted in a contemporary expression of Ancient Irish Spirituality. I am based in Boyle, Roscommon, tho from County Down.

Really cool site this and have enjoyed reading about various tunings. Thanks <3
