Free Concert, Pot-Luck Picnic

Pat Wictor walks on stage and sits down. He places a Guild DV-52 flat across his lap and begins playing slide guitar. The sounds are snaky and sizzling..." (Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live). Steeped in American "roots" music, Pat is a contemporary singer-songwriter and interpreter drawing on the rural country, gospel and blues traditions of our nation. An American raised in Venezuela, Holland, Norway and England until his teenage years, Pat has an unusually deep awareness of being a resident of a country while also a world citizen. His performances, part fireside chat, part meditation on matters earthly and transcendent, feature his original tunes, as well as a newly discovered lyrics from other performers, or fresh arrangements of traditional songs; he delights in introducing his audience to innovative material. With flowing red hair and zen-like calm, Pat embraces his audience with the sincerity of his music and the clarity of his voice, inviting them in.
