Patty Larkin

A New England folk pop mainstay for the last 30 years, Patty Larkin has crafted a remarkably fruitful music career based around her singular voice, affecting songwriting and intricate guitar playing. Her most recent recording, Still Green, has been met with praise from both longtime fans and critics, cementing her place among the pantheon of Boston folk greats.

Larkin is actually known as a double threat, both as a singer-songwriter and a well-schooled jazz/rock guitarist.  Her career began busking in the streets of Cambridge and studying jazz guitar at the Berklee School of Music before signing with Rounder Records and releasing her debut Step Into the Light in 1985. From there, Larkin’s prominence in the thriving folk scene of New England continued to grow, performing around the country and recording lauded albums on a handful of beloved folk labels like Vanguard and Signature Sounds. In 2010 she released 25, a retrospective done in her 25th year as a professional recording artist and containing 25 songs, each recorded with backing from a different friend (including Rosanne Cash, Martin Sexton, Shawn Colvin, Greg Brown and others).  Patty is the recipient of an Honorary Doctorate of Music from Berklee College of Music, where she is now an Artist in Residence. Patty has earned eleven Boston Music Awards.
