Heralded as "riveting" (Chicago Tribune) and "hypnotic" (Entertainment Weekly), Patty Larkin is a self-described "guitar driven songwriter" with an impressive 25 year career as one of the great voices of the contemporary urban folk scene. A winner of an unprecedented 11 Boston Music Awards, Larkin has re-interpreted traditional folk and rock melodies with her distinctive vocals and guitar wizardry. On her latest
CD 25, she uses her remarkable guitar skills and creative vocals to rework favorite songs by friends like Martin Sexton and Shawn Colvin in an acoustic, unplugged performance.
"A virtuoso guitar player and mood-shaper...She is also a superb slide guitarist whose mature work is comparable to the best of Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams."
- The New York Times
""An absolutely stunning guitarist...a true triple-threat artist."
