Padraig Jack has announced a number of tour gigs across Galway next month after releasing his new single ‘Atone’ last week.

The single, part of an upcoming album, features original member of The Waterboys and current Saw Doctor, Anthony Thistlethwaite.

Padraig and Anthony first met when Padraig opened for The Saw Doctors in 2018 and have been working together on Padraig's new album since summer 2023. Padraig explains: “I grew up listening to The Waterboys and The Saw Doctors. There's even something of a family connection as my dad was involved in bringing The Waterboys to Aran in 1988.”

Padraig Jack O Flaithearta was born into a musical family from the Aran islands. His dad is the songwriter Barry Ronan and he is the nephew of the Irish poet and Aosdána member Mary O’Malley.

Padraig Jack plays Joe Watty’s, Inis Mór on Friday, March 15; the Town Hall in Gort on Saturday, 23 March; Coyne’s, Cill Chiaran, Friday, March 29.
