"Paddy Callaghan is one of Scotland's finest accordion players. He has a great swinging style and always leaves you smiling. Paddy is also very professional and a pleasure to work with."

Simon Thoumire - Creative Director, Hands Up For Trad

"splendidly represented by accordionist Paddy Callaghan and his trio, demonstrating the fluency, finesse and technical authority that earned his reigning status as Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year."

I have been working with Scottish/Irish box player, Paddy Callahan on many projects over the past several years. He brings tremendous energy to every show and his understated humour onstage is at a very high level.  I have been very impressed with his work with young emerging artists over the years. Now that he is better known in the New England region we find accordion fans traveling great distances to catch his shows. Wether in a solo show, an ensemble, or in a workshop setting, I know my audiences will be well served

"To say Paddy is an Excellent Musician is an understatement.
It's plain to see why Paddy is the current BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year.
There is no doubt in my mind Paddy can achieve great things in Music, Oh and he is also a very nice guy!"
