Taking a quick break from the busy tour life with Victor Wainwright & The Train, Pat Harrington is making a stop at his regular stomping grounds, Fanatics Pub for a fun night of music with his long time friend and Buffalo’s local roots musician, Owen Eichensehr. https://www.oweneichensehr.com/
Over the years, Eichensehr has become a sought after hired gun on the drum kit and guitar, having gigged and recorded with dozens of Western New York’s heaviest hitting roots musicians (many of whom are Buffalo Music Hall of Famers). These include, but are certainly not limited to: JJ White, Jeremy Keyes, Willie May, Hayden Fogle, Jay Moynihan (Buddy Guy), Robert “Freightrain” Parker, Jony James, Tommy Z, Doug Yeomans, and Sharon Bailey, to name a few.
Pat Harrington is the lead guitarist for the Grammy Nominated and Multi-Blues Music Award winning band, Victor Wainwright & The Train.
Originally from Western NY, Harrington made his home in Memphis, TN for 5 years where he toured full-time nationally and internationally with The Train as well as several other of the Blues world’s most notable names.
When not on the road, Harrington became a sought-after guitarist on the local scene playing countless gigs around town as he became a student of the soulful sounds that have long been synonymous with Memphis music. It was during those formative years that Harrington truly began crafting his own unique voice and style as a guitarist, bringing in his many different musical influences, from Jazz and Funk to Bluegrass and Country flavors. He has since become a part of the national conversation as one of the most inspiring, versatile and distinctive players in the American Roots music genre today.
