Pat says: "Classic jazz, silky smooth with a gospel touch, that's the music in me. My voice and songs inspire my audience so much so that they cannot resist the urge to sing along and participate in this engaging soulful musical experience. Music is magic! Music is my passion!
"I visited Pendle Hill many times when I lived in the Philadelphia area as a guest and also workshop facilitator in a program with George Lakey. I make it a point to stop by when I come back to the area for a visit.
"Since my career in music has taken off in Nova Scotia, I wanted to perform a concert at Pendle Hill because it's a sacred space, and place that I love so much. My spirit is filled when I am in community at Pendle Hill. Secondly, I want to share Pendle Hill with my faith community, The Center of Peace, family and friends. It's a wonderful way to introduce them to Pendle Hill by inviting them to this concert."
Pat will be accompanied by Aaron Graves, musician/composer/arranger/producer/conductor. Aaron Graves was raised in Reidsville, North Carolina. He learned to play various instruments including piano, bass, organ, and drums, in the church where his father, a great musician with a musical family, was pastor.
