Singer/Songwriter Patty Larkin to Play the Lincoln, 4/25
Patty Larkin redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Acoustic Guitar hails her "soundscape experiments" while Rolling Stone praises her "evocative and sonic shading." She has been described as "riveting" (Chicago Tribune), "hypnotic" (Entertainment Weekly), and a "drop-dead brilliant" performer (Performing Songwriter). Patty Larkin is touring in support of the release of her 14th recording, Still Green, a fresh approach to sound and life from a legendary songwriter who continues to amaze.

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 and 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.
