Paul Duffy is the consummate performer. A gifted sax player, stunningly soulful vocalist, engaging storyteller, he also plays trumpet, flute, guitar, keyboards, drums, bass, tin whistle and bagpipes. Born into an Irish circus family, Duffy's International Circus, he was walking the tightrope while playing sax by the time he was 9 years old. As a young man, he played with The Miami Showband and The Irishmen, also working in Dublin as a studio musician. For 6 years, he played with the wildly popular Irish soul band, The Commitments, of 1991 movie fame which was voted best Irish film of all time in a 2005 poll sponsored by Jameson Irish Whiskey. Over the years, Paul has played with the likes of Ben E. King, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Brian Johnson, Suzi Quatro, Chris de Burgh, Paul Hazel, The Corrs and Hazel O'Connor.

Paul Duffy is world class entertainer and a local gem. This is a must see event!
