FOLK | Patty Larkin


If a city has a day of appreciation held in a musician's name, the assumption is they must be pretty good. For Patty Larkin, that is a very safe assumption. The Boston-based — and Boston-loved — singer-songwriter's warm voice, paired with her fluent guitar playing, combines to create a captivating, incredible soundscape. Her topics aren't typically cheery — see "Who Holds Your Hand When You're Alone?" — but it's always more about deep thought than it is sad.

Patty Larkin with Mary Monroe plays Saturday, October 4, at Café Veritas, First Unitarian Church of Rochester, 220 South Winton Road. 7:30 p.m. $10-$18.;
