Paddie Bell (8 April 1931 – 3 August 2005) was an Irish folk singer and musician.
Bell was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but was a resident of Edinburgh, Scotland for most of her life. She sang with The Corrie Folk Trio from 1962 to 1965. The band later became The Corries after she left when she got pregnant in 1965. She pursued a solo career after this, releasing an album called Herself.
She returned to the Scottish folk scene in the 1990s, recorded two CDs, was a regular at Edinburgh Folk Club and had her own celebrated show in the Edinburgh Festival, as well as appearing at Festival Folk at the Oak.
