about

On Perfect Fit, Patrick McAvinue clearly shows that playing the fiddle is way deeper than playing the right notes in tune or having magnificent bowing and chops under his hands. Music often speaks louder than words, and when this fiddle master does use words, they are well chosen. But it’s Patrick’s versatility, sense of composition and inventiveness that make for a perfect recording.

The compositions trace an emotional parallel track to Patrick’s rise as a preeminent fiddler. His melodies are surrounded by textures and tones played by virtuosos who serve the ensemble sound with elegance and drive. You couldn’t write a more beautiful love song than “The Perfect Fit,” a testament to Patrick’s effort to make his life embrace the love he has to give and his openness to receiving it in return.

Perfect Fit tells stories that connect Patrick to his ancestors and family, while exploring his own heart and artistry. I know I will listen to this recording over and over again, and it won’t be long till I’ll be saying, “I knew him when...” - Cathy Fink, GRAMMY® Award Winner
