Saturday, May 12, 2012 | 7:00 PM Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall :: 4544 N. Lincoln Ave. $25 General Public/$23 Old Town School Members/$21 Seniors & Children BOX OFFICE: 773.728.6000 Patty Larkin is part of the urban-folk/pop music phenomenon that spun off of the singer/songwriter explosion of the '70s, reinterpreting traditional folk melodies, rock, pop, bossa nova, drawing on anything from Dylan (Bob) to Dylan (Thomas). A self described "guitar driven songwriter," Larkin has wound her way through soundscapes of evocative vocals, inventive guitar wizardry and imaginative lyrics. Her songs run from impressionistic poetry to witty wordplay. "An absolutely stunning guitarist, easily on a par with Bonnie Raitt, Patty Larkin matches her instrumental chops as a vocalist and songwriter, making her a true triple-threat artist." - Billboard Lucy Kaplansky started out singing in Chicago bars. Then, barely out of high school, she took off for New York City. There she found a fertile community of songwriters and performers - Suzanne Vega, John Gorka, Bill Morrissey, Cliff Eberhardt, and others - where she fit right in. "New York songwriter Lucy Kaplansky is becoming the troubadour laureate of modern city folk." - The Boston Globe
