Five years ago, the band Sad Daddy, comprised of Melissa Carper on standup bass, Joe Sundell on Banjo and Brian Martin on guitar, came together as a group, and released an album. A few years later, the band cooled off when Carper and Sundell moved to Austin, Texas. But earlier this year, the group was again together in the Ozarks, and they added a fourth member, Rebecca Patek on fiddle. Oh a hot Sunday in August, the three original members of Sad Daddy came to the Firmin-Garner Performance studio to talk about music and to play a few songs.
