The New York Times calls the legendary Patty Larkin “A virtuoso guitar player and mood-shaper… also a superb slide guitarist whose mature work is comparable to the best of Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams.” Descended from a long line of Irish American singers and taletellers, she penned her latest album with a rescued guitar in a dune shack on the Cape Cod seashore.
Patty Larkin grew up in a musical and artistic family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Descended from a long line of Irish American singers and taletellers, her mother was a painter, her sisters both musicians. She learned at a young age to appreciate the beauty of the arts. She began classical piano studies at age 7, and became swept up in the sounds of pop and folk in the 60s, teaching herself the guitar and experimenting with songwriting in high school. An English major, Larkin sang throughout her high school and college career, starting out in coffeehouses in Oregon and San Francisco. Upon graduation from the University of Oregon, she moved to Boston and devoted herself to music, busking on the streets of Cambridge and studying jazz guitar at Berklee College of Music and with Boston area jazz guitarists.
