Pat Coldrick (IRL) Monday February 25 2013
Pat Coldrick returns to play BAG at Mick Murphy's, Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare on Monday, February 25. Doors 8:30pm. Admisson is €12 on the door.
Born in Navan and now living in Howth Co.
Dublin, Pat Coldrick has been playing and
studying classical guitar since he was 12 years old. Initially self taught, Pat went onto study music at the College of Music in Dublin and also had the opportunity to study under world renowned guitarists David Russell and Gabriel Esterellas.
A guitarist with a classical and rock background, he writes and performs works for the guitar with a fresh, new and exciting approach. Not for Pat the 'stuffy' world of classical guitar recital; his performances are engaging and thoroughly entertaining.
His musical career includes playing guitar with hugely popular Irish band The Memories in the 1980’s. Through his session and classical work, he has achieved some of the highest honours in Feis Ceoil Awards and has made a number of appearances on national TV shows on RTE and TV3 and guested on a number of radio interviews and live performances on RTE Radio 1 and Lyric FM. He has also been invited to perform at festivals in the United States, Austria and Estonia.
Experiencing Pat Coldrick live, offers a unique opportunity to enjoy his varied repertoire and own material, in an informal, relaxed atmosphere. His album “Cayendo”, released in 2011, includes some original compositions and arrangements as well as some guitar masterpieces such as “Asturias” by Albenis and “Danza Paraguaya No.1” by Barrios. Modern day popular songs are also cleverly arranged by Pat for his live performances.
