Come and throw a party with Paddy and the Rats!

All the way from Hungary, Paddy And the Rats sets sail to come and play at Elfia Haarzuilens 2019. This Celtic punk band sure knows how to throw a party! On both Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th of April, they will perform at Elfia Haarzuilens. They started gaining fame when their first album Rats on Board was released. The music is Irish and Celtic folk which they combine with punk rock, and some Russian, Gypsy and polka elements.

Shamrocks, shenanigans, sheep and pubs are some of the many highlights the Emerald Isle has to offer. That’s what Hungarian punk rockers Paddy And The Rats rightfully realized and quickly whipped out their fiddles and plugged in their guitars. Well, it’s one thing to dream about being Irish, but the Miskolc-based six piece instead brooded over a couple of cold beers and rum casks and decided to throw a hefty dose of pirate-isms, polka and gypsy punk into the mix!

The group was founded by Paddy O’Reilly (songwriter, vocals), Vince Murphy (bass) and Joey MacOnkay (electric guitar) in 2008. After that, Seamus Connelly (drums), Sonny Sullivan (accordion) and Sam McKenzie (fiddle, Irish whistles, bagpipes, mandolin) later joined the group.

Curious about their upbeat and catchy music? Get a glimpse down below at one of their latest songs!
