Originally from Charlottesville, Va., and now living in Rhode Island, singer-songwriter Pat McGee provides a glimpse at his newly launched solo effort in this Mountain Stage performance. After fronting the Pat McGee Band for 15 years, McGee released his first solo recording, inspired in part by the sudden death of his long-time drummer Chris Williams.

His recent losses — also including the death of his fan-club president — and his growing family are prevalent themes on the new album, These Days (The Virginia Sessions). Through creative editing, drummer Williams appears on some of the album's tracks. These Days was recorded in various studios, bedrooms, hotels, bathrooms and basements around Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and Rhode Island.

McGee performs with the Mountain Stage Band, with Ron Sowell on acoustic guitar, Julie Adams on backing vocals, Michael Lipton on electric guitar, Ammed Solomon on drums and Steve Hill on bass.
