Pat Wictor


Pat Wictor stands out in a crowd. With flowing red hair and zen-like calm, he sings in a pure voice and makes his instrument, the lap-style slide guitar, " sing" back to him. He can bring a room to silence, weaving several parts on his guitar and reaching quietly into each listener's heart. And his songs, drawn from the deep wells of rural blues, gospel, and country music, linger in the mind long after he's done. Pat will be joined for this performance by Jen Schoenwald and, Cheryl Prashker of Full Frontal Folk..

"Pat Wictor is a phenomenal lap-slide guitarist and songwriter as well as an interpreter of others' music. His lyrics are intelligent and compelling, his stage presence commanding." -Mike Space, Artistic Director, Godfrey Daniels, Bethlehem, PA
" Soft-spoken and articulate, in the 1930's he could have been a dust bowl preacher. The sermons, accompanied by the choir of his slide guitar, would have brought comfort to many a soul." -Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live
" Pat Wictor's songs, his blues tinged slide guitar and mellow performance style impress the hell out of me. Watch out for this guy. He's a terrific new talent." -Gene Shay, WXPN Philadelphia
"[He] plays heart-felt blues-based roots music like the only begotten son of Bonnie Raitt (same red hair!) and Chris Smither." -Jim Motavalli, WPKN Bridgeport
