Patrick resides in Lewisburg, WV and is a native Gaelic speaker, and his performances include original and traditional songs in Gaelic.

During his career, he has performed with two excellent bands, The Celtic Folk and the Poor Clares, whose second album, “Change of Habit,” reached the national charts. He has played a multitude of venues including the National Press Club, the D.C. mall on Solidarity day, Notre Dame University, the National Geographic Concert Series, the Milwaukee Irish Festival, and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival where he represented Celtic Culture for ten years in a row. He played on the island of St. Maarten in the Caribbean and he played the music on the documentary at Antietam Battlefield.
