Paddy Callaghan – Young Traditional Musician of the Year

Congratulations to our own Paddy Callaghan, who has just won the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year


In Paddy”s own words: “Absolutely shocked/delighted/in denial that I”m the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of 2013!”

Your colleagues at Celtic Music Radio had absolutely no doubt!  Well done!

Paddy”s day job is as Development Worker for Comhaltas in Scotland (and Wales) for Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann.

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann is the largest group involved in the preservation and promotion of Irish traditional music. They are a non-profit cultural movement with hundreds of local branches around the world, and have been working for the cause of Irish music since the middle of the last century (1951 to be precise).

Paddy has been a previous runner up in the BBC Scotland Young traditional Musician of the Year in 2010.

You can see all the performances on BBC Alba at 9pm on Monday night. More info on BBC website
