Patty Larkin, a performing songwriter with 14 recordings and more than 30 years of touring to her credit, redefines the boundaries of folk-pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Her live shows continue to wow audiences with her imaginative wit, writing and guitar artistry. She has been described as “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), “hypnotic” (Entertainment Weekly), and a “drop-dead brilliant” performer (Performing Songwriter).
Recently an Artist-in-Residence at Berklee College of Music in Boston (from which she also holds an Honorary Doctorate of Music), and now on the faculty at of the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA, Patty reflects: “I have been energized by the poets, writers and artists I have met while teaching, and I find myself on a journey to break down some of the predictable pathways that songs can travel.” Her 2018 release, Song Poems, reflects that. She describes the album as “a collection of poems I have spontaneously, organically set to song.” That process has inspired Patty in her own songwriting and has reignited her love for the sound of words. “The act of making music from poetry has been a very joyful one,” she says. “And what a beautiful thing it is to make a joyful noise.”
Her Oct. 6 concert will be Patty Larkin’s second appearance for the Folk Music Society of Huntington.
