Plain Folk


Glenna McConnell


The Paddingtons have been regular guests of the Side Door almost since the beginning, and there’s a good reason for that: they give a darn good show! We are thrilled that they have agreed to join us for the last show of our final season. The Paddingtons have been performing Celtic and Canadian folk music in and around Montreal and Ottawa since 1995. They have played in a wide variety of settings, from pubs and restaurants to concert halls, festival stages, coffee houses and house concerts.  They even feature prominently on the Assassin’s Creed series of games by Ubisoft. The Paddingtons are Seán Dagher on cittern and voice and Nelson Carter, originally from New Brunswick, on fiddle and voice, and they keep the whole room dancing.
