This group can frequently be found a pickin' and a singin' at 'The Grapevine Cafe' and Gallery' in Donaldsonville, LA. The Moss Pickers feature Pat's son Matthew Sylvest on upright bass, Clay Parker on Guitar and Harmonica, and Billy Finney on Banjo and Guitar. To date they've released one EP simply titled, 'The Moss Pickers' (The Alligator Disc) 2009.

Patrick Sylvest - Love His Music
He has a great sound that you can enjoy any time of the day!


This CD is lots of fun and at the same time has the country charm that makes you want to sing-a-long.


this is a gem, folks.
Pat has been making music in south Louisiana for a good while now, but this latest iteration of his catalogue has brought him full circle. In co-producer Randy Walsh, Sylvest has assembled a dynamic mix of style and mood. From the strident baritone voice of "Hammer" to the off-beat humor of "Holy Graffiti", the longing for innocence "Eskimo Kiss Waltz" to the sublime melody of "The Only One", you will find the depth of this album to be nothing short of remarkable. This is a timeless album, one that will grow on you the more you listen, I hope you are moved as much as I am.


Love these tunes. Clever lyrics but each one tells a story. Patrick makes those strings sing!
