Pat and his wife Terry have lived in rural Wisconsin for the past 40 years. It’s where they raised their children and enjoy time with their grandchildren. Pat’s elders came from the mountains of West Virginia and the Northwoods of Wisconsin and Michigan. All the generations live on in his songs, but it was his mother who taught him that music just makes life better.
Pat has been performing as a singer/songwriter/rural musician and in various bands for the past 50 years. Through the years Pat has graced big stages and little stages, schools, house concerts and barns. A multi-instrumentalist, Pat plays guitar, fiddle, clawhammer and 3-finger style 5-string banjo, and button accordion. Since 2016, Pat has been concentrating mostly on recording and performing his original material.
