Pat's People

- under construction-


Active: 60s-70s-80s
Style: folk


Irish traditional musicians transplanted from Belfast to North America - the move affected their music, and their records are well worth seeking out. They were still active in the late 80s/early 90s, long after the last record in the discography below.
