‘Exceptionally talented musicians.’


One off bookings

Joe Sartin (guitar & vocals) and Will Sartin (mandolin & vocals) are Patakas.

Patakas is pronounced pa : tak : ous.

A new duo bursting onto the English folk scene bringing driving rhythms and innovative harmony to their fresh interpretations of tunes and songs, including those of their own composition.

A member of the popular 5-piece ceilidh band, Out of Hand, Will has performed at Sidmouth, Chippenham and a host of other folk festivals since leaving the National Youth Folklore Troupe of England (NYFTE). 

Also a NYFTE alumnus, Joe was a founding member of trio Renard, lead singer of Second Knives, and is now studying for a music degree whilst pursuing professional projects in folk, jazz and rock; influences which contribute to the unique musical identity of Patakas.

‘Will and Joe Sartin share more than a striking physical resemblance to their esteemed father, Paul. Both are exceptionally talented musicians. Joe, still a teenager, is already showing himself to be a confident, beautiful singer with a strong traditional repertoire that owes much to his upbringing. Will is an incredibly dexterous mandolin player with the superb ceilidh band, Out of Hand.’
