About Pat Wictor
Pat Wictor plays his distinctive roots Americana on lap slide guitar. His performances–part fireside chat, part meditation on matters earthly and transcendent–feature originals drawn from the deep wells of rural blues, gospel, and country. He is also known for his fresh and inventive arrangements of traditional songs.
Pat took a convoluted path to roots music, winding his way through rock, heavy metal and jazz, honing his approach to improvisation. He started with guitar, shifted to bass, moved to saxophone and then quit music entirely before a return in 1993, a time when he also began composing songs. After years of quiet dedication to his craft, Pat is emerging as an important new voice. He has been featured at high-profile festivals – Philadelphia, Old Songs, Falcon Ridge – and the better listening rooms are starting to take note.
