Patsy O ‘Brien

“Ireland’s Best Kept Musical Secret”

Patsy O’Brien is called “Ireland’s best-kept musical secret” by The Irish Examiner, and is an award winning songwriter with three critically acclaimed CDs to his credit. He has been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered, and is one of Irish music’s most respected guitar accompanists. Born in Co. Cork, Patsy began performing his genre-hopping, blues and jazz influenced originals in clubs throughout Ireland. He then took his extraordinary talents to the United States.

Patsy’s guitar playing moves from driving rhythm to delicate and melodic finger picking, drawing an astonishing range of emotion from his instrument. “Like a good wine, singer/songwriter Patsy O’Brien has let his musicianship flourish…. throaty vocals, languid guitar.” The Irish Times
