Guitarist and harmonica player Pat Bergeson and his wife, jazz vocalist Annie Sellick appeared at Boulevard Music as part of the “Hot Club of Nashville,” one of Music City’s most popular musical groups. This show will spotlight these two fine artists with their own special show of classics and originals.
Nashville-native dread-locked jazz-vocalist Annie Sellick has performed and recorded with most of her heroes (including Joey DeFrancesco, Bela Fleck and a Mark O’ Connor tour), enjoyed stardom in her hometown and toured nationally and internationally. Annie recently toured all of December as a featured soloist with Tommy Emmanuel. Perhaps her best quality is the organic sincerity she exudes from the stage, hooking an audience into the stories of the songs she sings.
Rounding out the duo, Annie’s husband is as versatile a harmonica player as he is a guitarist. Pat Bergeson moved to Nashville upon Chet Atkins’ request to join his band (He joined Atkins and Jerry Reed to record their album, Sneakin’ Around) and has performed and recorded with a long list of chart toppers and cult favorites including tours with Lyle Lovett & Madeleine Peyroux. His versatility, which encompasses jazz, blues, rock and finger style, has led Bergeson to become a popular session musician for several well-known musicians, including Michael McDonald, Peter Frampton, and Tommy Emmanuel. Pat is currently a member of Les Brers, a new incarnation of the Allman Bros including original members Butch Truck and Jaimoe,& former members Oteil Burbridge and Jack Pearson. Pat also toured all of December with Tommy Emmanuel.
Together, Annie and Pat cover much musical ground with jazz standards, soulful originals and cabaret classics. The pair brings a high level of skill, confidence, ease and charm to each show gaining fans and followers wherever they perform. The music is jazz-based with acoustic guitars, harmonica and percussion but draws upon many styles creating a show that grooves, soothes and tells stories.
