Paul McKenna Band

Scottish folk act, The Paul McKenna Band, released their new EP, Setting Sun, to great acclaim on 5th April. Featuring the singles One Last Cold Kiss and the much-loved Dougie McLean classic, Solid Ground, the EP is the latest studio offering from one of the finest bands ever to have come out of Scotland.

Formed in Glasgow in 2006, The Paul McKenna Band sees Paul McKenna (vocals, guitar) come together with Ewan Baird (percussion), Conor Markey (banjo, bouzouki, guitars), Conal McDonagh (pipes, whistles) and Robbie Greig (fiddle). The members are bound by a shared love of Scottish and Irish traditional music and contemporary, dynamic compositions, all underpinned by expert playing and Paul’s stunning vocals, which are expertly applied in their newest release.

Paul was a featured artist at the world-renowned Transatlantic Sessions in 2019. Alongside Cara Dillon, Tim O’Brien, Molly Tuttle and the multi-talented house band he performed a string of shows across the UK.
