When Tom Wolfe wrote “You can’t go home again,” he obviously hadn’t met Daniel Patrick.  The Bay City native, T L Handy High School graduate and current South Carolina resident will do just that when he returns to Michigan for two concerts this week.

At the first of these shows, Patrick will be accompanying Jen Cass and the Lucky Nows at the Ark in Ann Arbor on December 1.  He will follow that with a show on Friday, December 2 at the State Theater in Bay City opening for the Legal Matters as they bring their new release Conrad to the historic stage.

The December 2 show, during which he will be joined onstage by Michael Robertson and Ron “Rosco” Selley, is also doubling at the official release of Patrick’s new recording, “End of The Day.”

The album is justifiably termed a solo effort, as it primarily features Patrick on vocals, mandolin and guitar with some vocal assistance from Andy Reed and Eric Janetsky on harmonies.

“End of the Day” is a wonderful effort, with seven original tunes that are delivered in sparse, yet colorful arrangements largely centered around Patrick’s voice and mandolin.

The songs all have a familiar and classic feel, drawing from the well of American folk music.   Highlights include well crafted tunes like album opener “Hard Road,” a plaintive driving song ready for a reflective ride in the country which might remind some of Greensky Bluegrass and “Saving Grace,” a lover’s lament laid over a melody that seemingly borrows as many pages from the Sunday hymnal as it does the Seldom Scene songbook.

Patrick, Robertson and Selley will take the stage this Friday at 7:30 PM, followed by the Legal Matters.  Tickets are available through the State Theater Box Office.  (913 Washington Ave, Bay City – 989 892 2660).
