My music has been variously described ,but mostly played or sung, and on occasions just banged along to. The style has been called zenpunkcountryandfolkwestern by marketeers, but I just call myself Paddy Tobin. " Paddy's music is Instrumental to Lyrical, with the accent on complexity and diversity of voices through spontaneous audience participation, and empathy.
