“Patrick alternated between delta and country blues, surrounding each song with its historical context. He told stories about single songs performed by different people in different decades and covered artists including Robert Johnson, Jimmy Reed, Peetie Wheatstraw, Howlin’ Wolf, Blind Blake and Lazy Lester Johnson. Pat’s narrative not only gave the song more meaning but also provided an effective segue through each set. . . . Patrick believes that when we talk about the performers and their music we give due credit to our roots. The styles featured . . . varied from finger picking his acoustic guitar to playing slide on a national steel resonator. . . Pat’s rich mellow sound drew even the casual patrons and hapless diners in. The audience sported a wide-aged demographic, ranging between 20 and 60 as well as novice blues listeners to long‑time blues fans. It is truly refreshing to hear excellent acoustic blues, rich in meaning and performed by a brilliant talent.”
