Jim is a veteran of the former Mon River Ramblers, and co-author of "Whiskey Night," the world's greatest "Silent Night" parody.
Last fall, Trish was out pickin' with the Jakob's Ferry Stragglers, while multiple combinations of Pat, Jim & Pete brought our good pal Vaughn Neill aboard for a few fun gigs.
HE'S BACK BABY. And to honor the occasion for a couple boys-only gigs, we've decided on the temporary moniker BLEUGRASS EN BLANC, your favorite French pickers!
Catch us Oct. 29 at A Few Bad Apples' annual Ciderfest in Spring Hill.
See yinz out there — kick it and pick it.
2/6/22 Whisper Nest, Millvale, with special guest Danny Rectenwald
Originally conceived as a reference to Pat's default state-of-being between April and September — as in, "We haven't even started the show yet and Pat's sweaty already!" — the Sweaty Already String Band hits the stage with a blend of traditional and modern bluegrass, along with some unexpected covers and original tunes steeped in the tradition of the Appalachian region where we all grew up.
The weather is coolin' down and we're ready for a few gigs where we don't start sweating until after we start pickin'!
One of the best things about the local bluegrass community is how many pals we have with the talent to jump in and pick for an evening. We've been lucky enough to have Danny Rectenwald from the Bastard Bearded Irishmen rollin' with us, along with regional friends like DeAnna Efaw, Megan Williams, Fiddlin' Ray Bruckman, Jason Ericsson and more!
Pete, Trish & Pat perform with Dead & in the Way
at the Rex Theater in Pittsburgh's South Side.
