Patrick Nehoda & Nick Parrish

Patrick Nehoda is an American Singer Songwriter in the Folk/Americana/Blues vein. He currently calls Nashville, TN home, via Seattle, via Sacramento. However he feels most at home on the road. Maybe it’s that distant Czech/Gypsy blood that explains both the yearning to move and the ear for heavy heartfelt music. Maybe it’s just his story.  In 2017 Patrick Nehoda’s song “Devil’s Bitch” won the best of 2016 award from Severn Fm, a FM station in Gloucester, UK. To hear this song look for the soon to be released Don’t Forget The Hat. Patrick Nehoda’s first full length album.

What a Performance with Kevin Brown

What a Performance is back this month in The Gallery! Richard Selby will be presiding over the proceedings with his wit and talent - this month Richard plays host to Kevin Brown, an English blues guitarist, songwriter and singer. His main genre is the blues, although he has spread out his style to incorporate country, folk, Americana and world music over an almost forty-year professional career. He has released twelve albums to date, which included collaborations with Moussa Kouyate and Gary Rudd. Performing from the main stage at the Glastonbury Festival to the bars of Texas, Mark Knopfler stated that Brown "offers far more than your average slide player".
