Saturday, Feb. 6

“This shaggy gaggle of hardworking fellows will have you smiling and singing along before you know it.”

Reader music writer Nick Warren put it well when wrote that about Erie roots/rock/bluegrass renegades Sean-Patrick and the Newgrass Revolution. He was referring to About Time, the recent LP that made Warren’s short list as one of the top three albums from Erie artists in 2015, but the same sure as hell holds true when the band is in its live – its best – form.

That’s the cut Sean-Patrick and the gang will be in on Feb. 6, when they hit the Kings Rook Club’s stage for a free (to 21+ members and guests) Saturday night show.

What Sean-Patrick and the Newgrass Revolution brings when they come out to play in Erie and the surrounding area, they say, is always “something soulful and real, something sad and true … something to help you enjoy your day.”

It’s also something that everyone can, and should, find easy to get down to.

That’s something – er, those are some things – alright. – Ryan Smith
