Paddy Folan and Jimmy Lamb have been performing Irish ballads and dance music for over 30 years. They combine button accordion, guitar and voices in their own distinctive and energetic way to make a sound that is true to the traditions of Irish and American folk music. Whether singing traditional ballads or interpreting modern folk/rock/pop songs, their vocal harmonies are tight and spirited. With an easy and collaborative charm they are equally at home in a small session or on stage in a pub, concert hall or festival.
As part of Guaranteed Irish Paddy and Jimmy play primarily in Pittsburgh, PA but have toured from Chicago to New York and Boston. They were featured on eight Caribbean cruises and have had three memorable tours of Ireland. In the past they have opened large concerts for such notable acts as Paddy Reilly, Patrick Street and The Irish Rovers.
The group has recorded three very well-received CDs, reissued several times and aired on all the major Pittsburgh radio stations and frequently on Connemara Community Radio in Galway, Ireland. The boys also contributed four cuts to the Andy Stewart tribute CD; It's All In The Song. See more about the CD's on the Recordings page, or CD Baby, or iTunes.
