THE PADDY D QUARTET

The Paddy D Quartet, led by songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, and pianist Paddy Dougherty-Braunstein, reunites on Saturday June 25, 2022, from
6-8 pm for the finale of this year’s Amherst Java and Jazz series at Second Stage | Amherst, 194 Second Street, Amherst.
This concert will bring group members — Glenn Buck on keyboards and saxophone and Larry Scott on drums together — together with Paddy D for its first full-length event in almost ten years. The fourth traditional member, Robin Tolley on bass, is unavailable and will be replaced in this concert by bassist Eric Hollandsworth to round out the quartet. The group will perform original songs by Paddy D, as well as standards by singer/songwriters including Bonnie Raitt and Carole King to name a few.
Local Favorite Paddy D graduated from Randolph Macon Woman’s College and taught school at James River Day School before taking leave to tour nationally as a back-up singer, teach songwriting at Sweet Briar College and write over 300 songs for Kid Pan Alley. She formed the Paddy D Quartet, and the group became popular in the Greater Lynchburg area. In 2012, Paddy returned to teaching (music, drama, and choral groups) at James River Day School. Paddy looks forward to introducing the group to her grandchildren.
