Since being awarded the title of “Best Up and Coming Artist of 2009″ at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, The Paul McKenna Band has gone from strength to strength touring extensively throughout Canada, the USA and Europe. In 2012 Paul was named “Scots Singer of the Year” and the band was nominated for “Folk Band of the Year” at the same awards ceremony.
Combining their love for folk and traditional music, as well as original songs and tunes; The Paul McKenna Band has been captivating audiences with live performances of their potent original compositions and arrangements at both home and abroad. Concert highlights include performances at The Vancouver Folk Music Festival (2017), The Edmonton Folk Festival, Celtic Connections in Glasgow and the Fylde Folk Festival in England.
The exciting sound of The Paul McKenna Band is created through outstanding vocals, driving guitar and bouzouki, intense fiddle playing, a warm pairing of flute and whistles and dynamic bodhrán and percussion. With a contemporary approach to songs, although not straying too far from their roots, their arrangements are both fresh and innovative.
