Still Singing After All These Years!
An Invitation from Pat:
I come from a show business family. My father travelled the world as a professional musician. As a child and teenager, whenever possible, I tagged along. It was thus that I got to experience performers such as: Sammy Davis, Jr., Nat King Cole, and Jonathan Winters. From the folk music side it was: The Kingston Trio, Peter Paul & Mary, The Smothers Brothers and The Limeliters.
For the last thirty-five years I have spent my workday teaching undergraduate and graduate students the intricacies of business and marketing. By night, however, I’ve been strumming a guitar and singing folksongs at local coffeehouses and folk venues first in the Boston area, and then in central Pennsylvania.
I try to bring more to the stage than just music. I am a storyteller, a folklorist and above all a seasoned teacher. From the ancient ballad, to the newest song that I’ve just composed, my years in front of both classes and audiences have honed my ability to draw the listener in and impart a deeper connection with the music.
Now, I’m stepping away from the days in the classroom to fully devote my time to creating and sharing with others the music that I love.
I invite you to take the opportunity to experience my music in person, and see for yourself, what I have to offer.
