For 25 years now, Patty has been redefining the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. She has been described as “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), “hypnotic” (Entertainment Weekly) and a “drop-dead brilliant” performer (Performing Songwriter). On her new CD, “25,” Patty reworked 25 love songs and asked 25 friends to add any accompaniment they liked, all to celebrate her 25 years of making music. Special guests on the project include Shawn Colvin, Martin Sexton, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Suzanne Vega, Bruce Cockburn, Erin McKeown, Greg Brown, Jonatha Brooke, and Nerissa & Katryna Nields, among others. As with this show, many of those guest artists will be joining Patty at concerts throughout her anniversary year.
