Pat Temple celebrates the release of a brand new recording ‘Day For Day’ at
The Monarch Tavern, 12 Clinton St., Toronto, January 31, 2015, 9:00 pm.
This is a landmark event for Pat Temple who turns sixty years old on January 25. The recording features some of Canada’s finest roots musicians, fourteen in number on different songs, and was recorded in three sessions over the course of 2014. The songs remain true to the ‘Hillbilly Jazz’ style of Pat’s 90’s cult hits ‘Salamander Bones’ and ‘Playin Havoc With My Heart’. As always there’s a finger snappin’, toe tappin’, knee slappin’, money back guarantee so bring your dancing shoes!!
