Patton & Kelly



Brian Patton and Pete Kelly have become an established and popular duo since their formation in 1991. They appeal to audiences of all ages with their exciting blend of contemporary and traditional Irish music. Should the situation occur, they can also adapt their programme to include country, 60’s and rock n roll making them ideal for all types of function. Patton and Kelly generate the power of a full band without the use of backing tapes and will incorporate electronic kick drums to enhance the sound.


Brian and Pete  have played in every venue imaginable, from the smallest of pubs to the largest theatres on the world’s largest cruise ships and have played with many of the Greats of Irish music such as Paddy Reilly, The Fureys, and Davy Arthur, as well as Ska legends Bad Manners, and sixties favourites The Bachelors
Brian's fiddle playing is described by many as simply breathtaking, Jigs and Reels fly effortlessly from his fingers with such speed that audiences are left either spellbound or exhausted. His knowledge of traditional Irish tunes seems unlimited and when he turns his hand to the slow, haunting Irish tunes you are left feeling that you are actually somewhere in the hills of Donegal.



Patton and Kelly have proven themselves to be one of the finest most adaptable duos around and have received acclaim in “The Stage and Television today”, following various performances.(see press )
For larger venues Brian and Pete felt it important to increase the size of the band, so in the year 1999, the Wild Irish were formed.
