Patty redefines the boundaries of folk-pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. A New York Times “Critics Choice,” Patty is performing songwriter with thirteen recordings and 30 years of touring to her credit. She has been described as “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), “hypnotic” (Entertainment Weekly) and a “drop-dead brilliant” performer (Performing Songwriter).
Patty’s latest release Still Green was written in a primitive dune shack on the Outer Banks of Cape Cod’s National Seashore. She celebrated her 25th year of recording with 25, a career retrospective reworked with voice and guitar and 25 friends. Among them, Grammy award winners Rosanne Cash, Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, and Janis Ian and a veritable who’s-who of singer songwriters including Bruce Cockburn, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Dar Williams, and Greg Brown. A superlative guitarist, Patty was the Executive Producer of the groundbreaking La Guitara, a compilation of women guitarists including Sharon Isbin, Badi Assad, Wu Mann, Kaki King, among others, who are actively changing our preconceptions about gender and guitar heroes.
Patty’s songs have been featured in television and film including Evolution (DreamWorks); Random Hearts (Columbia Pictures); Sliding Doors (Miramax). She is the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate of Music from Berklee College of Music where she is an artist-in –residence and has been honored in Boston by Mayor Thomas Menino with “Patty Larkin Appreciation Day” in recognition of her music and philanthropic support of important non-profit organizations.
