about

Traditional Irish music played on the uilleann pipes, tin whistle, low whistle and a dose of a song for safe measure! I went to great lengths to ensure that the sound reproduced was as the pipes sound to me when I play them in a perfect setting. I am delighted to say that Bryan Dobbs did a great job achieving that. It's as authentic a reproduction as I could have wished for. I hope you enjoy the tunes!

Bio:

Patrick D'Arcy hails from Dublin, Ireland and has spent most of his musical life plying his craft in California.

Patrick tours regularly both in the US and internationally. Since 2010 he has had the privilege to tour extensively from The Waterfront in Belfast to The Grand 'Ol Opry in Nashville with modern hymn writers Keith & Kristyn Getty.

Patrick has appeared on numerous recordings over the years in all genres of music and has written music for TV. He has played for some familiar figures including Bono (U2), The Kennedy and Shriver Families, Quincy Jones, Daniel Lanois, Oprah Winfrey and David Foster.

As well as recording and performing with local bands and producers in Los Angeles, he also participates in online recording sessions with artists all around the world. He enjoys teaching the Uilleann pipes locally in California as well as at tionóil (gatherings) around the country and now via online methods, to a world wide student body.

In the early days of playing the Uilleann pipes he would venture to County Clare where he got a firm footing by attending the legendary "Willie Clancy Summer School" in Milltown Malbay, named after one of Irelands most influential pipers.

He is a founding member of the Southern California Uilleann Pipers Club and creator of UilleannObsession.com

Patrick plays two main instruments, one in concert pitch by Koehler & Quinn and the other a "flat set" in B by Geoff Wooff.
