Last night I went to a local coffee shop (that now serves beer. Yeah!) to see Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale, two singer-songwriters from Los Angeles. It was a truly blissful show. Kenneth played a parlor style all Mahogany Martin and Joey had a sunburst dreadnaught Gibson. One would sing a song while the other harmonized and then they would switch. Kenneth played some of the most sublime, tasteful leads I have heard in some time. Think David Rawlings. It was a rock-solid 45 minutes and the place was pin drop silent. Even their deadpan stage banter was perfection. A truly inspiring show. Catch them if you can.
