Could be a relation..not sure. Anyway, someone has passed a little book he wrote on to me. It is just a story of how he was hired to track down a stolen banjo...not a biography or anything. I will mail to anyone in US who wants it. First come, first served. I also have an MP3 of him singing a song about Blackbeard the pirate. PM me if you would like a copy and give me your email. mg

I remember Pat fondly. He was a large force in the fifties at the "Pamir House." He and his bride Victoria were and amazing coupe. Good singers and song writers, both of them.

I have read the book. bb(deckman)nelson

I see from Jack' link that Pat's ex, Victoria Garvey Armstrong, died in 2014. I don't know the latest re Pat (recovered from a stroke in 2006). Anyway, the book sounds intriguing.

If any other mudcatters are interested in the book and CD, I (re)found it in a pile of books while reorganizing this past weekend and thought it would be a good idea to pass it along to someone else -- any takers?

The book THE MUSIC DETECTIVE by Pat Garvey says it is "part memory, part made up".
Quite interesting bits about people and places a musician on the road
will identify with. Names of many music venues, I assume to be from
his memory.
Quite interesting section about Lionel Killberg. Member ot THE SHANTY BOYS (Mike Cohen (guitar), Lionel Kilberg ('Brownie' bass) and Roger Sprung (banjo) recorded one album for Elektra, EKL 142 Off Beat Folksongs.
Owner of the Shoostryng label which recorded a bunch of albums Sociologically Singing, and the first recording of Kate Wolf !!!

Anyone else who has read it ? Comments ??

Thomas.
