Pat Coldrick Guitarist at Howth

Pat Coldrick returns to The Abbey Tavern Howth on Saturday 23rd November.
Pat Coldrick is an Irish Virtuoso Guitarist and Composer, who is creating a new genre of guitar performance.To really grasp his unique and original guitar
playing, you need to experience his live performance.

Pat has been described as ‘pushing the boundaries of classical guitar’ with his musical interpretations and compositions and has made Classical Guitar
exciting, interesting and more accessible to music lovers in general. Through his interpretation of music and by exploring and embracing new technologies he
strives to enhance the dynamics of the classical guitar and bring his music to a wider audience both at home and abroad.

His music appeals to a huge cross section of music lovers. While Pat plays his own arrangements of great classical pieces, it is his own compositions that
sets him apart – pieces such as Lament, City Jam and Antarctica to name but a few. Pat’s skillful and atmospheric connection with his audience is an art form
in itself and is in total contrast to other more formal classical performances. He has a very easy going, laid back and unassuming approach and his
interaction with the audience and philosophy of ‘entertaining’ rather than ‘educating’ his listeners is a breath of fresh air.

Once Pat begins to play people are immediately captivated by his dedication, passion and skill. His interpretation and delivery of each piece combined with
his superb artistry as a performer results in his unique ability to make his audience laugh and equally move them to tears.

To date Pat has produced 2 albums – Cayendo in 2010 and City Jam was release in November 2014. Since City Jam was launched his music has been played on all
the major radio stations in Ireland and was voted ‘Album of the Week’ on RTE Lyric FM. It’s fair to say that Pat’s music is currently attracting a lot of
attention in classical quarters and beyond. Pat is now widely acknowledged as a very accomplished musician and composer who is succeeding in bringing
classical guitar music ‘Centre Stage’ where he so passionately believes it belongs.

Pat’s musical formation has not followed normal traditional lines. He is mainly self taught and in a relatively short period of time he has put together an
impressive body of work and has gained considerable recognition throughout Ireland and Internationally both as a performer and composer.
