Patchy Sanders teams up with Br'er Rabbit at the Alberta St. Public House
Patchy Sanders, a Modern Folk Orchestra, weaves the musical traditions of Celtic, Appalachian, Medieval, and Bluegrass while building bridges into the current of today's Folk. Influenced by the broader folk revival of the last 70+ years, the band's three distinct songwriters draw upon diverse influences to bring forth a new, yet familiar sound.
Mason Jennings describes Patchy Sanders live performance: "Great musicianship, harmonies and feel. A really warm vibe that makes wherever you are standing feel like the center of a gypsy caravan."
Brothers Zach and Nathan Hamer have been playing music and reading each other's minds since their earliest days running around the wooded areas of their family's farm at the farthest Northwest corner of the U.S. Meanwhile, on the other side of the same small town, Miranda Zickler was playing Radiohead and Jackson 5 covers at her high school's lunchtime concerts. It wasn't till they had all spent varying lengths of time in New York City (Zach and Nathan for filmmaking and an English degree, respectively, and Miranda for musical theatre and busking on the L train subway platform) that they ended up in the same diner in Union Square and decided to start making music together. They moved back to the Northwest in the summer of 2012, and have since dedicated their lives wholly to playing, writing, touring, and stomping. With the addition of Jillian Walker on cello at the end of 2013, the group has rounded out into a very unique breed of string band.
