Glasgow’s Paul McKenna sees the world as verses and choruses. For over a decade he has travelled the world as a musician, collecting the stories of everyday and exceptional lives. From there come the songs written and sung by a common man with an exceptional voice. His vibrato is immediately recognizable and when he begins to weave a tale, an audience is stilled.
When asked what he wants from the music industry it’s simply – “nothing…I just want to sing songs”. Be it social injustice, inequality or an homage to the wonder and joy of simple things, he sings for us all. His band mates (Ewan Baird, Conor Markey, Robbie Greig, Conal McDonagh) weave exceptional melodies with traditional instrumentation and their sound has carried them to no less than six major Canadian Folk Festivals from Vancouver to Nova Scotia in 2017.
Also alumni at some of the world’s finest festivals (Woodford Folk Festival, Tonder Folk Festival, Cambridge Folk Fest), they have toured Germany, England, Belgium, Australia, USA, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Denmark extensively for over a decade. Named ‘Scots Singer of the Year’ in 2012 at The Scots Trad Music Awards, Paul’s accolades continue to elevate him, the band and 4 albums full of well-crafted tales of people we know and people we wish we could be.
