More Info

Lafayette, Louisiana native and multi-instrumen talist Beth Patterson is foremost a player of the eight- and ten-stringed Irish bouzoukis. Known for her razor wit and musical versatility, her performances are chock-full of drive, savage energy, and passion, laced with humor and rapport with her listeners, dishing out an eclectic repertoire of original and traditional songs. She integrates her quirky, progressive sound with Celtic music and other ethnic styles, resulting in her own sound she dubs "SWAP" (Songwriter/Wor ld/Acoustic/Pro gressive). Tonight, she will be performing with local pianist, Josh Paxton, who specializes in the kind of funky, rootsy, jazz-inflected piano music the Crescent City is known for. Originally from Cincinnati, Josh came to New Orleans to get his Master's in Jazz Piano at UNO, toured with the Afghan Whigs for a bit, but had to return to New Orleans' calling. Together, these artists have just put out a CD together entitled "Zoukeys Senzorga"
