John Kelly and Band


John Kelly is a warm, funny, passionate musician with over 30 years’ live experience. He is a lover and a (non-violent) fighter for equality, inclusion and human rights.

His song-writing sits alongside that of his heroes and peers; containing all the compassion & conviction of Woody Guthrie, the fiery passion of Billy Bragg and the imaginative storytelling of Ian Dury & The Blockheads.

As a solo artist and lead member of the band Rockinpaddy he has wowed crowds at gigs ranging from backroom pubs to sold-out stadiums.

John’s music is informed by his broad musical tastes encompassing Irish, folk and traditional music alongside rockabilly, punk, ska and blues.

  • Saturday 17th July, 8:15pm.
