Patricia Shih – Songbirds (Tribute to 5 Women in Folk Music)
Series: Special Events
National award-winning singer-songwriter Patricia Shih brings a multi-media tribute to five extraordinary female musicians for a lively and spirited night of music!
In this show Patricia highlights five women – Ronnie Gilbert of the Weavers, Joan Baez, Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary, Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell– all giants in folk music who have influenced generations of contemporary artists, including herself. Combining projected photos, recorded narration and music Ms. Shih brings the era of the great “folk boom” of the 1950s – 1970s straight into her listeners’ hearts and minds. Some song samples will be original recordings from the artists themselves, but Patricia sings full versions of these artists’ most beloved songs live, along with her husband/accompanist Stephen Fricker. True to her mission of creating community and lifting spirits, she invites her audiences to sing with her. This presentation is lively and spirited, touching on history, biography and music. After the concert there will be a CD release party for Patricia’s newest album, Gold Covered which complements “Songbirds.”
