At McWilliam Park Hotel 20th August 2022
Patrick Feeney was born to sing and from the age of four he wanted to be on stage with his father who played in a local band.
“While I can’t remember it, I’m told by others, that at the age of four I would make attempts to get up on stage any time that we went to see my dad playing with his band. In venues where I did get to crawl up on the stage I would climb on my dad’s knees and attempt to play the drums,” says Patrick.
His phenomenal success, especially over the past few years, is summed up in three words from the title of Patrick’s first album, back in 2003 – that title says it’s all… Thanks to You.
Its 15 years since the then teenager released that debut album, and while he has recorded countless songs since, he still lives by the motto that it’s thanks to you, the fans, that he is such a success today.
It was the man that later launched another young singer, Nathan Carter, songwriter John Farry, who also launched Patrick when he wrote the title song for his first album. Since then both Patrick and Nathan have diversified into many musical genres while at all times their separate careers have enjoyed continuous upward curves.
Patrick’s work with his dance band, plus his concert career as one third of the sensationally successful Three Amigos, the others being Jimmy Buckley and Robert Mizzell, has resulted in sold-out shows and many national and international TV appearances.
Growing up near Gurteen, Co. Sligo Patrick says that Country music was always on the local radio in the family home at that time. It was during the late 80s and 90s when the songs of Daniel O’Donnell and others were huge on local radio. Patrick went on to play and sing in his early teens with his dad as a duo while studying sales and marketing at third level college. “My dad influenced me a lot into the Country style of music. But as I come from an area that is rich in Traditional Irish music, Sligo, famous for the great Trad musician Michael Coleman, I was influenced by Irish songs and tunes too.”
