Paddy Glackin & Paddy Keenan

Paddy Glackin and Paddy Keenan have a lot in common (besides the name!) - both grew up in Dublin City; Paddy Glackin on the North side of the Liffey, in Clontarf and Paddy Keenan on the South side, in Ballyfermot. They were each strongly influenced by their fathers, both of whom play the same instruments as their sons - John Keenan the uilleann pipes and Tom Glackin the fiddle. They first played together in a band call 'Seachtar'. Paddy Glackin left the band when they decided to turn professional and rename as 'The Bothy Band' he did however reunite with Paddy Keenan to record the classic album 'Doublin'
