Harry Pritchett

Harry Pritchett writes and performs a mix of melodic folk pop and acoustic Americana that rocks! His song "Night Bird" was awarded Silver in the 26th Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, 2009. Employing a deceptively simple, conversational approach to lyrics, his songs are filled with images that invite the listener in to experience the story. Musically, he combines elements of pop, folk, and rock, with strong melodies and song structures that flow naturally to memorable choruses.

Harry has played at venues across the Washington DC area including Jamie’s General Bean (Centreville, VA), The Coffee Table (Frederick, MD), Mark’s Pub (Falls Church, VA), The Frederick Coffee Company (Frederick, MD), and St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub (Alexandria, VA). He has performed as the feature act at the Brewer’s Alley Songwriter's Showcase in Frederick, MD, and the Caribou Coffee Showcase in Olney, MD. He has also performed as a guest at various songwriter showcases including Bangkok Blues in Falls Church, VA, Red Rocks Café and Tequila Bar in Centreville, VA, and Jammin Java in Vienna, VA.

Harry's latest CD, “Strange Journey,“ produced by multi-WAMMIE award winner Marco Delmar, was released in July 2009. The album features Harry on acoustic guitar and vocals accompanied by excellent musicians including Jon Nazdin (bass), Robbie Magruder (drums), Brian Simms (keyboard and piano), Jack Bond (guitar), Rocky Guttmann (guitar and harmony), Marco Delmar (guitar), Ron Goad (percussion), Cletus Kennelly (harmony), and Pete Brown (harmony).

Ron Goad of the Songwriter's Association of Washington writes "Strange Journey is really a delightful journey with Harry. Nightbird, set on a beach, is my favorite right now and should be heard everywhere! Harry's voice is strong; the lost-love lyrics are clever (the plot thickens in the bridge). Cletus Kennelly's harmonies could not be better. Ingenious Jack Bond plays a magical, startlingly beautiful guitar part. One of my drum heroes, Robbie Magruder, plays the drum set, while I add enough hand drums to take you to tropical islands."
