"Patrick, I love my Charm City Fiddle Favorites CD. Bluegrass, Irish and Old Time all in one place. The tunes are great and your presentation is clean and tasteful. The slow versions make it easy to hear what you are doing. This will keep me busy all Summer." - Leo Hickman, Bloomington, IN

CHARM CITY FIDDLE FAVORITES, VOL. 1

After a couple of late nights recording sessions, Patrick amassed 77 minutes of solo fiddle (that's right, solo) to aid in the learning of common Bluegrass, Irish and Oldtime session tunes of his hometown, Baltimore, MD. There are 16 of his favorite tunes featured. Each tune is recorded twice - first at a jam tempo, and again very slowly. This CD is intended for jammers looking to expand their repertoire, and/or music lovers who simply enjoy listening to fiddle music!

Recorded and Produced by Patrick McAvinue in Baltimore, MD.

Mastering & Duplication by Mark "T" Tobolsky and Will Shenk of National Media Services.
