Saturday, June 6- Patrick Sweany with special guest Tyler-James Kelly
Patrick Sweany likes the spaces in between.
On a given night (or on a given album) he’ll swing through blues, folk, soul, bluegrass, maybe some classic 50s rock, or a punk speedball. He’s a musical omnivore, devouring every popular music sound of the last 70 years, and mixing ‘em all together seamlessly into his own stew. Yet, the one thing that most people notice about Patrick isn’t his ability to copy – it’s his authenticity. Like his heroes, artists like Bobby “Blue” Bland, Doug Sahm, Joe Tex, Patrick somehow manages to blend all of these influences into something all his own.
It’s no wonder that as a kid he immersed himself in his dad’s extensive record collection: 60s folk, vintage country, soul, and, of course, blues. Patrick spent hours teaching himself to fingerpick along to Leadbelly, Lightnin’ Hopkins, and other folk-blues giants.
In his late teens, Patrick began playing the clubs and coffeehouses around Kent, OH. He quickly gained a reputation for the intricate country blues style he was developing: part Piedmont picking, part Delta slide – with an equally impressive deep, smooth vocal style.
After 4 critically acclaimed CDs (two produced by longtime collaborator Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys), Patrick has expanded his touring radius to 49 states and the UK. He’s played premiere festivals all over the U.S., and supported national acts such as The Black Keys, The Gourds, The Wood Brothers, Wayne Hancock, Hot Tuna, and Paul Thorn on tour.
Tyler-James Kelly: “When your father plays this odd collection of records throughout your foundation years and at the age of five plants a guitar in your lap, you might be affected. Since then music has always been a euphoric experience to me. Hearing my father crank Jimi Hendrix’s Star Spangled Banner as loud as possible was overwhelming and eye-opening. Sometimes I would want to really listen to the music and ask him to turn it down. He would reply, “If it’s too loud, you’re too old.”
Two guitar masters that complement each other perfectly. We welcome Patrick Sweany for the first time, and welcome back Tyler-James Kelly, returning after his triumphant appearance at Lily Pads in 2013, with his band The Silks.
