Christian Pat Shelby is recognized by musicians, club and coffeehouse audiences alike as one of the fastest-rising fingerstyle guitarists/vocalists in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. His self-titled debut CD includes original material which impressively shows off his percussive 6 and 12 string fingerstyle picking and emotive vocal style. Pat's songs range from thoughtful, spiritually based reflections to fluid acoustic instrumentals. He's backed by some of the hottest local players around, including Clint Hoover on harmonica, Marc Anderson on percussion, Enrique Toussaint on bass and Mark Henderson on soprano sax.
