"Wait on the Moon"
Paddy Dougherty, who was the leading vocalist for Main Street Rhythm and Blues in Lynchburg, Virginia, has stepped out on her own. Currently, she has two CD's released that are featured on her website and at local area stores. Her most current CD is "Wait on the Moon." Her music has it roots in Jazz and Blues that she has mastered, and now has developed her own approach. An able song writer in her own right, her CD's offer many of her own compositions.
Paddy has appeared in many clubs up and down the East Coast. She has also performed back up vocals for many musicians including such noted blues stars as David Bromberg. She has appeared in DC's Wolf Trap and venues such as NPR radio's Mountain Stage. These are just two of her many musical accomplishments.
The News and Advance has started a website, called Beats in the Burg , where one of her songs is featured as a free download. Paddy's music stands out on their website as one of the best offerings of the area. And we encourage you to both look at her website and Beats in the Burg so you can decide for yourself. Her local appearances can be found on her website.
