Kildare Jazz Festival: Patrick Stefan
Patrick Stefan is an award-winning Irish/Dutch songwriter from Co. Clare & Dublin. In 2023 Patrick sold out his album release show Wayfare (digitally released in late 2022) an alt-folk document of Patrick's unique & colourful travels from Scandinavia, Brazil, to west Africa and back home.
After racking up over half a million streams on Superman - a star-studded 2020 soulful collaboration featuring Uly & Rob de Boer Patrick was tipped as by the likes of Nialler9, The Last Mixed Tape, and BBC’s Across The Line for his unique sound.
A once-Fulbright scholar, Patrick opted to follow the path of his father’s folk-singing- footsteps after building up an impressive list of collaborators like Niwel Tsumbu, rising stars Aby Coulibaly & Monjola, fiddler Martin Hayes (with the award-winning instrumental group Ensemble Ériu), Loah, Lisa Canny, Fehdah and 2017 Eurovision winner Luisa Sobral.
Patrick stefan is the inaugural Night & Day festival song competition with the song Head Voices, was a ISC songwriting semi-finalist and recently opened concerts for Niamh Regan, Gemma Dunleavy, Kean Kavanagh & Melina Malone.
