Pat Wictor, with Genevieve opening
Pat Wictor first burst on the folk and acoustic scene as an innovative slide guitarist known for fresh and memorable interpretations of traditional and contemporary songs. Since then he has made his mark as a singer-songwriter penning lean and poetic songs that honor - and subvert - rural blues and gospel traditions. For seven years he toured as one third of Brother Sun, the powerful harmonizing trio with Joe Jencks and Greg Greenway, garnering critical acclaim, two #1 CDs on the Folk DJ charts, and a continent-spanning tour schedule. His most recent solo release, This is Absolutely Real: Visions and Versions of Phil Ochs, reached #2 on the Folk-DJ charts and was nominated for Best Tribute Album by the Independent Music Awards.
Imagine a grittier piano-playing Belle - full of curiosity, compassion, verve, wit, and intelligence, but also bearing battle scars from living life unapologetically and with intention. Like an old friend with a ready shoulder, reminding you you’re not alone in this world, Genevieve has a gift for true, deep connection. Her soulful voice, thoughtful lyrics, and catchy songs combine folk, pop, country, blues, and roots to create an adult contemporary aesthetic that moves your soul and touches your heart. Also an accomplished children’s book author and wildlife photographer, she weaves her colorful life stories into her shows, creating a uniquely compelling experience.
