Paddy Tutty is best known as a singer of traditional songs. Her repertoire encompasses ancient ballads, songs from a woman's perspective, magical and seasonal pageants, songs with a twist, and songs about the world around us. As well as singing traditional music from the British Isles and North America, she incorporates a few newer songs and tunes on guitar and concertina, but is best known for the driving rhythm of her fretted dulcimer and her renditions of traditional ballads.
Born and raised on the Canadian Prairies and based in Saskatoon, Paddy has performed for audiences across Canada. In addition to her solo work, she has collaborated with other musicians in theatre, music, storytelling and recording projects. Working with such renowned producers as David Essig, Ken Hamm and Ian Tamblyn, she has released six recordings on her independent label Prairie Druid Music. Her self-produced CD, The Last Holdout, was released in October 2013.
