Patty LarkinPatty Larkin redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Acoustic Guitar hails her “soundscape experiments” while Rolling Stone praises her “evocative and sonic shading.” She has been described as “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), “hypnotic” (Entertainment Weekly) and a “drop-dead brilliant” performer (Performing Songwriter).

 

“Still Green,” Patty Larkin’s 13th album, plays out in Technicolor sound images, a kaleidoscope of sun and sea that travels from the fluorescent-lit hallways of grief to the warm pull of love, family and nature. This collection of new songs chronicles Patty's search for relief, respite and solace during a time when she lost both of her parents, and witnessed a sister suffer a serious health issue.

 

Born in Iowa and raised in Milwaukee, Patty majored in English at the University of Oregon and moved to Boston to study jazz guitar at the Berklee College of Music, where she now holds an honorary Ph.D. She launched her career in the late 1980s, busking on street corners and playing in coffee houses. Since then she’s released a dozen solo albums and produced La Guitarra, a compilation of great guitar-playing women from around the world. For an evening of outstanding songs artfully performed, catch Patty at the Freight.
