A highly in-demand sideman, he has performed and recorded with Bluegrass music icons Bobby Osborne, Del McCoury, Marty Stuart, Paul Williams and J.D. Crowe, to name a few. He and his fiddle have appeared at Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Birchmere, The Country Ren-dez vous Festival in Crappone, FR, and The U.S. Embassy in Quito, EC. Currently, Patrick tours with the acclaimed Bluegrass super-group Dailey & Vincent and is a featured recording artist for the Patuxent Music and Mountain Home record labels. When home from the road, he enjoys sharing his passion and love for music with his private students.
