For as long as I can remember I've been a fan of singer-songwriter Patty Larkin. I remember playing her on my college radio show back in NH a million years ago and seeing her play for the first time at my school's student union when there were only about a dozen of us there.
Since the mid 80s Larkin's been releasing consistenly terrific records that show off her songwriting brilliance, her lovely vocals and her formidable guitar skills.
Welcome back to Maine, Patty.
Here's a clip from a 2011 performance:
If U GO:
WHEN: 7:30 p.m. on Friday, June 8
WHERE: The St. Lawrence Arts Center, 76 Congress St., Portland
HOW MUCH: $35 in advance (meaning today!), $40 day of show (tomorrow!) and hey, this is a benefit show for the St. Lawrence!
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
