With their 4th album “Dogs on the Leash” the 7 musicians of “The O’Reillys and the Paddyhats” do not leave the dogs on a leash at all. Their rocky-punky music with more than just a dash of life-affirming and sometimes mystical Irish Folk reminds us of a stray mutt who brings back from his travels captivating, often funny but sometimes sad stories and maybe a few fleas. Everything is allowed when Irish melodies meet hard electric guitar and an ancient musical culture meets a modern world. If you don’t leave the club dancing, singing and half staggering, you probably haven’t been to a Paddyhats concert. Because of course there are also enough drinking songs! The O’Reillys and the Paddyhats bring their Irish Folk Punk into your head, your legs and your soul!
Never keep the “Dogs on the Leash”! .
