Patti is a master of simple, pure vocal understatement, a one-in-a-million voice, nationally recognized as an award-winning songwriter, and musically at home in a beautiful array of traditional and contemporary genres. Her songwriting has taken her to stages across the US, from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival to North Carolina’s MerleFest, to Kerrville Folk Festival, to A Prairie Home Companion, where her voice has garnered national attention and she has returned to her native Green Mountain State of Vermont with many awards and accolades.
Springing from a deep love of traditional Americana music, Patti immersed herself in bluegrass for many years, and was a founding member, songwriter, and lead singer for Vermont’s beloved Bluegrass Gospel Project. She then spent nearly a decade touring nationally with the legendary folk ensemble Woods Tea Company, where her songwriting, singing, flute playing, rhythm guitar work, and seated foot percussion found their way to new areas all across the US.
Patti has produced 5 solo recordings, mostly of her own material and backed up by a roster of musical pals that demonstrates her love of collaboration, and has backed countless other New England musicians’ recordings, done movie soundtrack work, songwriting workshops, and bluegrass jams.
Patti grew up in Vergennes VT, where the sign at the edge of town proudly proclaimed, “Smallest City in the USA,” and now lives in Montpelier VT, the smallest state capitol in the USA. Why haven’t you come to Nashville, they ask, time and again? Because … Vermont.
