As guitarist/singer/songwriter for New Grass Revival, Flynn along with Sam Bush, John Cowan and Béla Fleck, influenced many of today's best-known artists while building their own loyal audience to near cult status. Attesting to the group's continuing popularity and influence, Capitol-EMI Records will release a very special two-CD New Grass Revival 20 year retrospective this coming May. This historic collection will feature previously unreleased live, TV and studio tracks.

During his tenure with NGR, Frets magazine’s National Readers Poll voted Pat as “Best Acoustic Guitarist” for five consecutive years. For winning five years in a row, Flynn was inducted into the Frets "Gallery of Greats" alongside Chet Atkins, Doc Watson and Tony Rice.

Flynn has also been a session guitarist on more than 350 CD projects, including 26 Gold and Platinum records, as well as CMA and Grammy award winning projects, with a wide array of top artists. Flynn wrote and performed on Garth Brooks' hit single “Do What You Gotta Do” (which has recently been reissued in the new Garth Brooks box set).

Pat is a featured artist on the Nashville Acoustic Sessions CD project, with Raul Malo, Rob Ickes and Dave Pomeroy on CMH Records. The record ended up on many critics “best of the year” lists, and achieved Top-10 status on the Americana radio chart. Pat is also a featured player on The Greencards much acclaimed debut CD, Movin' On and Weather and Water, released on DualTone Records.

In the past couple of years, Pat has added the role of "producer" to his resume by producing up and coming acts like Tim May, Alan Thornhill, Joe Nolan, David Bevins and Candace Corrigan.

Pat's first solo CD project, entitled reQuest, is now available at, and distributed nationally by Sony/Emergent. Appearing with Pat on this project are Béla Fleck, John Cowan, Rob Ickes, Stuart Duncan, Jim Hoke, Buddy Greene and others. In addition to Flynn’s cover stories in Flatpicking Guitar and Bluegrass Now magazines since Summer 2004, he was also chosen as Tom T Hall's musical director and guitarist, for Hall’s recent “Artist In Residence” month at The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, a retrospective of Tom T Hall's incredible musical career.

The 2005 festival season found Pat performing on many of the country's most prestigious festival stages: MerleFest Americana Music Celebration, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, Rocky Grass, Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield), as well as a slot at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass event. Flynn’s signature line-up of “Pat Flynn & Friends” featured some of his best friends and musicians he most admires: John Cowan, Tim O'Brien, Darrell Scott, Stuart Duncan, Buddy Greene, Michael Card, and many others.
