Pádraig Jack



RTE Folk Music Awards nominee Padraig Jack writes and sings meaningful songs on guitar and piano in Gaelic and English. A native of the Aran islands which has produced writers Liam O Flaithearta, Máirtín Ó Direáin and Breandán Ó hEithir, Padraig is proudly bilingual both as a conversationalist and a songwriter. His debut album ‘Making Sand’ was released in September 2020 being named the RTE Radio Album of the Week. The title track ‘Making Sand’ was nominated for an RTE Folk Music Award for “Best Original Song”.

Magic, there's a deeply romantic core to Making Sand but Padraig Jack is too talented to ever veer into saccharine territory, authenticity is his hallmark
