Sad Patrick

Sad Patrick is a songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist who was kicked out of the Calliope School of Folk Music when he started using “jazz” chords. He earned the name "Sad" based on his early songs, and liked the sound of it.

wxpn Key Studio Session
with John Vetesse
If you’re in search of evidence that the Philly open mic scene is very much thriving, look no further than Bethlehem and Sad Patrick. The local duo blends the focused minimalism and poetic lyrics of folk tradition with simmering, freewheeling jazz and blues — slick guitars, soaring vocals, nuanced melodies. And it all came together by chance.
wxpn Folk Show
with Ian Zolitor
“I can make the argument that everything is folk music,” he says. “I can make the argument that true folk music does not exist anymore. But the best way to define it is a traditional form of music that comes from the people, that the common folk can play themselves.” - Ian Zolitor, host.
The Key's Year-End Mania
John Vettese’s Top Six Philly Music Discoveries of 2016
"Bethlehem's dynamic and soulful voice will knock you sideways on its own strength; paired with Sad Patrick’s jazz tinged guitar playing, just wow. The Germantown duo of Bethlehem and Sad Patrick got their start in the open mic circuit in the Northwest section of the city, capturing audiences with their minimal style – guided by hand percussion and tarima beats – and they stepped out this summer with a powerful performance at the Philadelphia Folk Festival."
