About the Event
Award-winning songwriter, Folkgoddess Diane Patterson subverts the dominant paradigm with rocking acoustic guitar and ukulele, a mighty pen, and a woman's voice. Since 1989, Patterson weaves her original Mystic Acoustic Americana and unifying stories, planting seeds of love and realness.
Diane’s new album, Satchel of Songs, was recorded last year in New Orleans with platinum record-producer Mike Napolitano and features amazing supporting musicians such as Terence Higgins, Todd Sickafoose, Barbara Higbie, Joe Craven and Ani DiFranco. This season the folkgoddess also debuts a music video for her 20-year-old song, Ballad of Big Mountain, all filmed around the stunning Diné/Navajo lands.
Diane played folk guitar in church as a kid in the 80’s, and now she tours winters in Hawaii and summers in Scandinavia with songs that come from visions of equality and passion for wild forests. In April she returns to Sweden and Denmark for a 2-month musical tour of small venues and living rooms, followed by a September tour across the Midwestern United States. She’ll be performing her Mystic Acoustic Americana music solo, which is a powerful place for her to deliver from.
