Sweaty Already String Band at Schenley Plaza

September 14, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Originally conceived as a reference to Pat’s default state-of-being between April and September — as in,”We haven’t even started the show yet and Pat’s sweaty already!” — the Sweaty Already String Band hits the stage with a blend of traditional and modern bluegrass, along with some unexpected covers and original tunes steeped in the tradition of the Appalachian region where we all grew up.

One of the best things about the local bluegrass community is how many pals we have with the talent to jump in and pick for an evening. We’ve been lucky enough to have Danny Rectenwald from the Bastard Bearded Irishmen rollin’ with us, along with regional friends like DeAnna EfawMegan Williams, Dr. Jon FinderJason Ericsson and more!

The Sweaty Already String Band is

  • Patrick Varine, guitar/vocals

  • Peter Flynn, guitar/banjo/vocals

  • Jim Kuzemka, mandolin/vocals

  • Trish Imbrogno, double bass/vocals

Come enjoy a summer evening of music outside! No tickets needed, but we will be accepting tips for the artists both online and at the show itself. Suggested tip is $15, and any amount is welcome.

Cash bar provided by The Porch at Schenley Plaza!
