Patchouli: Folk Rock Meets Flamenco Guitar

Event Type: Performance
Age Group(s): All Ages
Date: 10/12/2014
Start Time: 3:00 PM
End Time: 4:15 PM
Description:
 Nationally touring, award-winning songwriter Julie Patchouli and master guitarist Bruce Hecksel light up the air with sparkling acoustic sounds and their powerful contagious chemistry. Famous for the smiling voice that instantly turns a bad day into a good one, Patchouli’s down-to-earth, hopeful songwriting is “New American Folk,” blending elements of folk, pop, flamenco, and jazz with world beat rhythms. Patchouli’s sound has been described as “the harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel meet the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings. Years of touring have honed this classically trained duo into legendary performers. Patchouli represents the top echelon of today's acoustic performers, bringing the highest level of skill together with the passion, experience, and joy that are a rare combination indeed.

“Patchouli live is amazing. I compare it to taking a yoga class in a field of running mustangs.”
