Best known as a singer of traditional songs, Paddy Tutty sings ancient ballads, songs from a woman's perspective, songs with a twist, and songs about the world around us. Her music is driven by the rhythm of the fretted dulcimer, but this multi-instrumentalist is also heard with guitar, fiddle and anglo-concertina. Born and raised on the prairies, she has toured extensively and has released six albums on her independent label Prairie Druid Music.
