Although new to Gigmasters, rest assured you'll be in good hands with Patrick Fitzsimons handling the music for your event. For going on two decades, Patrick has been performing for weddings, festivals, restaurants, clubs, and various events as a solo artist. He's released three albums since 2004. Patrick's latest album, Full Circle, was released in November of 2012. He has shared the stage with a great diversity of musicians & bands, including Arrested Development, Rising Appalachia, Doc Watson, The Kruger Brothers, Larry Keel & Natural Bridge, Kofi Burbridge, Vieux Farka Toure, and Toubab Krewe, among others.

Born in Ireland and brought up in the USA, Patrick has continued travelling the world since infancy. Patrick's music reflects this, exuding eclecticism, while traversing influences from North America, Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, & beyond. Patrick currently performs with Asheville-based afropop band, Zansa, in addition to his live-looping solo act.

Patrick's always been a singer, but his career as a guitarist began on street corners and shopfronts. In those early days, he was delving into the music of blues giants such as Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, and Etta Baker. The influences of blues & ragtime served as a foundation for Patrick to expand his playing into other folk & popular styles of music.

Patrick Fitzsimons now serves up an example of fine fingerpicking guitar. The versatility in his playing expresses itself through American music, be it singing & scatting through a jazz tune like Mack The Knife, or fingerpicking an old-time song like Shady Grove. Offerings of country, latin, reggae, and pop standards & originals also find themselves in the mix. A loop pedal allows Patrick to layer chords, bass lines, and percussion parts to fill out his signature sound as a true one-man-band.
