Threads

Derek Byrne and Paddygrass

In cart Not available Out of stock

Every Paddygrass gig has a message thread for our set list, car pool details and Dad jokes. So many great musicians are woven together in the fabric of Paddygrass. Irish, Bluegrass, Gospel and so much more, it's hard to know where one style ends and another begins. Paddygrass is a tightly knit family growing closer with every note.

Press Release 
New music from Paddygrass

After working through our new songs at live shows for most of 2022, we took January 2023 off to record our new CD. We set out to make our sound bigger and feature all the players of Paddygrass. We have always been a collective of musicians that get together in various combinations. This time, we wanted everyone on the record.
Sara Kilpatrick wrote some amazing horn parts. We've featured Saxophone, Tuba and Clarinet before, but only as solos, never together as a complete horn section. So, we added, Trombone, Trumpet and French Horn. Go big or go home.
All our soloists came in and put their talents to the music. Harmonica, Mandolin, Viola, Bodhran, Piano, Drumset, bass and banjo, then we added backing vocals. This is our most ambitious recording ever. Close to 20 musicians are on this CD! Peter Carlson had to edit and mix all the layers of sound on each track. It's a testament to his skill and patience as a producer. He's been with the band 15 years, so he knows us better than anyone. We can't thank him enough. 
Erico Ortiz came up with legendary artwork again. All the musicians played their heart out. Most of all, our patrons on Patreon are responsible for realizing the dream of this recording. We couldn't have done it without them.
And now it's here, for you to listen and share.
