Paddy and the Pale Boys play the traditional songs and music of Ireland and Scotland, along with some good ol' boy country and rock 'n' roll. "Who is Paddy?" you may ask. "And what exactly are Pale Boys?" Well, they are a band from northern New Jersey and they are all about passion. A passion about an ancient heritage and a musical tradition of a people who knew that each new day brought hardship and that each night was for revelry. The musical tradition was most recently brought to the public's attention by Shane MacGowan and the Pogues. Before them were the fiery Luke Kelly and the Dubliners, the Chieftains and the Clancy Brothers. And before them, well, the list goes on and on. Each breathing new life into old traditions and bringing new audiences to the revelry that is Irish music.
The Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission is happy to present Paddy and the Pale Boys in a free concert on the lawn of Shippen Manor. Bring lawn chairs or a blanket, pack a picnic if you like, and relax and enjoy a variety of live musical performances at Shippen Manor.
