Ballad singer and multi-instrumentalist.

Tutty's simple, straightforward interpretation of traditional material has stood the test of time.
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.
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
