August 21 – Patrick Sweany, Supported by Sleepwalk Sunday
Winery Sponsor – Wattle Creek Winery
Concert Sponsor – Exchange Bank
On a given night (or on a given album) Patrick Sweany will 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.
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.
Supporting Patrick Sweany will be Sonoma County’s Sleepwalk Sunday, led by Justin Schaefers.
