By the time they take the stage in North East on Friday, Sept. 25, Erie roots/rock/bluegrass renegades Sean Patrick and the Newgrass Revolution will have had a busy, and well-traveled, few weeks.

The band’s “Surrounded by Pines” 2015 fall tour started early this month with a show in nearby Waterford, and ends with this weekend’s headlining gig at the North East Wine Country Harvest Festival. In the 20 days spanning those shows, though, the four-man band has been all over the place: West Virginia, Virginia, D.C., North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and several other points in between.

Good times, too, as evidenced by Newgrass fans’ and the band’s own social media posts, which, of late, include lots of shots — all aptly-headed #seansitsonstuff — of Patrick, well, sitting atop all kinds of things (an anchor, a tank, other stuff) along the highways and byways of their musical journey.

Welcome home, then, fellas — come sit back and play awhile. —  Ryan Smith
