Perfect Fit is a landscape puzzle of the musical life of award-winning fiddler Patrick McAvinue. From his multi-genre studies at Towson University, through his tenures with bluegrass artists Audie Blaylock & Redline and Dailey & Vincent, making dream appearances on the Grand Ole Opry, and pushing the boundaries of traditional Irish fiddle tunes with jazz flavorings through his own band Charm City Junction, Patrick captures all of his personal history into songs that, as a group, defy categorization. He paints a modern interpretation of a classic song style with “Waltz for Kelly.” He demonstrates that he can steer comfortably on the americana highway with “Voice in Your Ear.” He doesn’t forget the fun and excitement of bluegrass jamming by giving the listener the breakneck “Der Belsnickel.” He even lets the listener know he has a respect for modern rock music with a sweet, sensitive take on Radiohead’s “Gagging Order.” There is a reason Patrick has won both the Momentum award and Fiddle Player of the Year award from the International Bluegrass Music Association. Bluegrass-ers know there is a talent here. With the release of Perfect Fit, so many others will know as well. – Matt Merta, Fiddler Magazine
