Pat Reedy & The Longtime Goners are a group of musicians from all corners of the U.S. brought together by their love of good times, good people and hootenanny music! For the past three years they have all worked together in keeping their band alive as well as their purpose which is to share honest hard working original country music with everybody everywhere. They have toured the country playing with a line up like no other:
Pat Reedy, longtime songwriter, pulled together a band of buddies whose love for the music cannot be ignored. Alternating songs with Pat is Ronnie Aitkens, who like Pat, writes songs from the heart and just plain living. He brings a nice lonesome country spice to the table.
Southern Louisiana native Tony Frickey on drums and Alaskan Corey McGillivary on bass can be heard keeping the songs tight and old school throughout the show along side John James playing Pedal Steel to Fiddle to any damn thing you hand him.
From the honkytonks in Montana to the Woody Guthrie Festival in Oklahoma and on over to your Grandpas back yard barbecue and down to New Orleans ! Pat Reedy and the Longtime Goners keep an old tradition alive that stands strong beside our Country Heroes and Hillbilly Hobos! -- Riley Downing (of the Tumbleweeds).
Look Homeward is a family affair. Lee Anderson began playing songs of the rich North Carolina folk tradition while living in a cabin in Foscoe, NC. When he transferred to UNC-Chapel Hill to study religion, his brother Will picked up a banjo and the two found themselves performing at two main locations: bars and churches. Soon they learned that Will's lovely wife Lauren was a more talented singer than any of them, and she joined the band as well. The Hunger and the Ghost EP is a long time coming, and Look Homeward's debut release. These are songs about longing, love, God, mystery, death, and the American South. We hope they help keep your feet moving along the journey.
Look Homeward is happy to bring on board the outrageously gifted upright bass phenomenon, Alex Bingham, as well as the downright sensational fiddle extraordinaire, Taya Ricker!
