Pat Wictor and Lipbone Redding :: First Saturday Concert - October 2
Living Ever-Lovin' Live
In a remarkably short period of time, Pat Wictor has become the name that is being chatted about on the acoustic, blues, folk and Americana circuits. Steeped in American "roots" music, Pat is a contemporary songwriter and interpreter drawing on the rural country, gospel, and blues traditions of our nation. An American by birth, Pat was raised outside of the US until his teenage years, living in Venezuela, Holland, Norway, and England, when he began his music education. After a hiatus, Pat returned to music in 1993, began composing songs, and in 2001, left a teaching career to pursue music full time. An adept improviser and accompanist, he is sought after as a collaborator, sideman and session musician, with numerous recording credits and honors to date. He is a music educator of note, teaching workshops on writing, interpreting, and rearranging songs on guitar, as well as being a music historian.
His performances - part fireside chat, part meditation on matters earthly and transcendent - feature his originals, and fresh arrangements of traditional songs. With flowing red hair and zen-like calm, Pat embraces his audience with the sincerity of his music and the clarity of his voice, inviting them in. Pat views his life and his music as a journey, populated with an ever-shifting landscape of people, places and emotions. It is a journey he is eager to share with others, knowing that it is the experiences along the way, not the arrival, that initiate the most profound changes.
& the LipBone Orchestra
That's not a trombone you're hearing...
It's a human voice. Former subway musician Lipbone Redding revs up the party and makes lots of sounds with only his lips. He not only imitates a trombone, he is an accomplished soloist, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer. He's the Jazz, Blues, Jam and Soul version of a human beat-box ... make that a "Human Sweet Box." Inventive voice-strumentalist and Southern Gentleman, Lipbone Redding, creates original songs that effervesce with New Orleans swing, Memphis grooves and New York City style. Storyteller, songwriter, guitarist and voice-strumentalist Lipbone Redding, has spent the last 20 years traveling the world collecting and recounting exotic tales through music and performance art.
