Paddy Jones passed away on the 30th of May 2020. He was a magic musician and a heart warming person to be around. Until 2018 I had only admired him from afar so I jumped at the opportunity to be interview for a video in 2018.

I had first saw Paddy Jones in May 2014 when he gave a lecture about Sliabh Luachra music at my friends house in Ballydesmond.

Every time I met him since he was so friendly and helpful with lovely bits of advice about life and music. I could listen to him play the fiddle for ever because he had the “draíocht”. Rest in peace Paddy Jones
