“Opening up the night was North Coast slide guitarist Pat Tierney. Admittedly not knowing any of his tracks going into the night, Tierney was tight and accomplished as he brought his brand of roots to those starting their Friday night early. Closing on a stellar cover of the Paul Simon classic “Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes”, I’d definitely look at investing some time into discovering Pat Tierney”
