Artist in Residence:
Driven by his passion for roots music, Patrick McAvinue uses traditional bluegrass to create his own unique performances that embody musicality, energy, and creativity. McAvinue was recently awarded the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2015 Momentum Instrumentalist of the Year, an award reserved for emerging virtuosic artists. McAvinue tours with acclaimed bluegrass super-group Audie Blaylock and Redline, Baltimore-based traditional roots quartet Charm City Junction, and is a featured recording artist for the Patuxent Music recording label. McAvinue recently released Charm City Fiddle Favorites, Vol. 1—sixteen foot-stomping solo fiddle tunes that embody Baltimore’s style of music.
- From The Koppernik Theatre in Prague to The Country Ren-dez vous Festival in France to the US Embassy in Ecuador, McAvinue’s performances have thrilled audiences around the world!
- Audie Blaylock and Redline’s I’m Going Back to Old Kentucky topped both Bluegrass Music Profiles’ Top 10 Albums and Bluegrass Today’s Weekly Song Chart with McAvinue on fiddle.
- “Roller coaster ride of pure uncut fiddle nirvana”— those are the words used to describe McAvinue’s album Rutland’s Reel by Country Music Pride’s Joseph Scott.
