Track Featured On Tom McDermott's New Release "Bamboula"

Tom McDermott is a good friend of mine from New Orlean's, LA and I am honored to appear on a track of his new release "Bamboula".  The album was produced by none other than Los Angeles based music legend Van Dyke Parks.  I'm on the disc playing one of Tom's original musettes thrillingly titled "Musette in A Minor".  The folks of New Orleans based Offbeat Magazine even gave me a shout out in the review:

"...Accordionist Patrick Harison takes the lead in a waltzing “Musette in A Minor,” as well as what was the piano solo on Almost Native version in this never-before-released take. "

"Bamboula" is available via all major music outlets September 1st, 2013

Dakota Dave Hull's CD Release Concert October 19th

It was a privilege to play on Dakota Dave Hull's new 2 disc release "Under The North Star".  Dave has asked me to play some of my rarely heard solo accordion concert repertoire ahead of his set for the CD release concert on October 19th.  We may even reprise some of the tunes from the Album as a Duo... Also on the bill, traditional jazz piano champion Butch Thompson.  Mark your calendars!
