ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Paddyman is renowned as a highly versatile Irish showman with a huge repertoire!

This album reflects Paddyman's genuine desire to give people musical experiences they will really enjoy. To that end, he has included some well known traditional irish songs (such as Whiskey in the Jar) as well as some well known contemporary covers (like Castle on the Hill). These are excellently performed by Paddyman with the assistance of many musical friends on a variety of modern and traditional irish instruments.

However, the really interesting part of the album lies in the original songs. The first track for example - For What Died the Sons of Roisin - was inspired by a poem written by the late LUKE KELLY (of Dubliner's Fame). Paddyman used the poem as a base, added a handful of words to make it work and layered on the music. A traditional Irish reel is thrown in between verses to lift things unexpectedly.

He has included a fast version of the song he wrote and sang for his mother's funeral in Ireland, You will be missed. When asked why he included the fast version instead of the slow one, he said that his mother would have liked the beat of this one and he wanted to use the song to celebrate her life rather than mourn her passing.

Paddyman's love of traditional Irish music comes across clearly on the album. In fact, he says that he wrote lyrics to go with some of the most loved traditional tunes - The secret of a real Irish pub for example, showcases the well known tune "The Mason's Apron".

in true Paddyman form, there is some cheeky wit to be found on the album -Songs like The Secret of a real Irish Pub for example!
The album's title One for the Road is taken from the final song. It is a high energy tongue and cheek pub song that features the ever popular John Ryan's Polka towards the end. A great finale to any album or night in an Irish Pub!
