Paddy performs and records Greek, Brazilian, Irish, and his own original music widely across Europe and the Americas, and his instrumental retro surf rock project, Echolocator, will be releasing its first album in late 2022. He was recently named a Master Artist by both the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Florida Folklife Program for his work teaching and performing the traditional music and oral poetry of the island of Kalymnos.
