Singer, trombonist, songwriter, actor, great entertainer, and much more...It’s Paddy Sherlock, an eccentric Irish live performer, located in Paris. After starting his career alongside international stars such as F F F and Liz Mc Comb, Sherlock perfected his vocal technique, his skills as a trombonist, and the funny sketches that made him one of France's favorite entertainers. He has performed at the Coolin Irish Club in St. Germain for over twenty years and he can boast of shows at festivals such as the Glastonbury, Paléo in Nyon, or the Montreal Jazz Fest and in prestigious halls such as the Lincoln Center in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington, the Barbican in London or the Sonar in Barcelona. He has worked with with international stars such Linda Hopkins, Liz McComb, Wendell Brunius, Chilly Gonzales, Bernard Lavilliers and many others. His music is a mix of jazz, swing, funk New Orleans Street grooves and Irish soul. At JazzAscona 2017 he will be accompanied by the talented Swedish singer, Ellen Birath, and pianist Chris Cody.
