Paddy League

Paddy League is a performer, composer, musicologist, and author specializing in the music and poetry of Brazil, Greece, Ireland, and the Gulf Coast of Florida. He grew up playing percussion, various lutes (from guitar to bouzouki), and fiddle at social dances in his parents’ Greek and Irish immigrant communities, and as a young adult spent several years living and working in Brazil and Greece, immersing himself in local music scenes and picking up a few more instruments along the way. He performs and records extensively across the Americas and Europe, and teaches musicology and directs the Center for Music of the Americas at Florida State University.
