Old roots music: songs, ballads,
old & new tunes.

Singing songs that tell stories of women and men who pre-date the dreams of the prairie settlers, Paddy Tutty's music has a quality of magic in it that reminds the fields themselves of their former glory. Her voice guides the strings of her guitar and dulcimer and sets off the punchiness of her concertina playing through tales of passion, words of warning, and incantations for the finest of rains and sunniest of days. - The Gravelbourg Tribune, Gravelbourg, SK

Album Reviews

The Roving Jewel

I've always enjoyed Paddy's voice. She has a distinctive timbre, passion which never gets out of control, masterful pacing in the ballads where her voice alternately soars like a lark in the sky and gently folds around phrases like a leaf round a bud.

Live Reviews

Paddy Tutty in Concert

Paddy plays a rocking dulcimer! Her guitar, fiddle and dulcimer were all perfectly matched to the songs that she sang and she explores both Child Ballads and Appalachian traditional music with the same reverent verve. Pondside Music, Victoria, BC
