Paddy Canny was raised in Ireland’s State Clare surrounded by fiddlers. His dad performed the device, as do both his brothers, as well as the blind fiddle trainer Paddy MacNamara boarded using the family through the winter. So it’s no real surprise that Canny himself was raised to become among the finest fiddlers to try out within the East Clare custom along with a co-founder from the respectable Tulla Ceili Music group. More unexpected are Canny’s many prominent shows over time because, by all accounts, he’s quite timid. He didn’t record his debut single recording, Cló Iar-Chonnachta, until he was a septuagenarian. Despite his natural reserve, he sometimes stepped in to the primary spotlight. Through the 1950s, he performed his fiddle through the live broadcasts of Radio Eireann. The next 10 years he also performed on R.T.E. tv. Canny is really a indigenous of Glendree, Tulla. During the period of a profession that spanned half of a century, he performed at a number of locations, from small regional dances to the level of New York’s Carnegie Hall. He performed for almost twenty years using the Tulla music group, alongside fiddlers Peadar O’Loughlin and PJ Hayes. The three are mentioned for appearing around the 1st commercial recording to feature traditional Irish music in 1959, All Ireland Champions -Violin. Noted fiddler Martin Hayes cites Canny, his uncle, as a significant inspiration.
