Patty Larkin has been redefining the boundaries of folk/pop for 25 years with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Acoustic Guitar hails her "soundscape experiments" while Rolling Stone praises her "evocative and subtle sonic shading." She has been described as "riveting" (Chicago Tribune), "hypnotic" (Entertainment Weekly) and a "drop-dead brilliant" performer (Performing Songwriter).

In 2010, Larkin celebrated a quarter of a century of music-making with 25, a recording of 25 love songs reworked with voice and guitar and 25 friends along the way. 25 is the unplugged version of classic Patty Larkin love songs, created with a dream team of some of acoustic music's heroes, including Shawn Colvin, Suzanne Vega, Bruce Cockburn, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and others. It is her first project since her New York Times critic's choice Watch the Sky and ground-breaking La Guitara, a compilation of international women guitarists. Larkin is currently writing material for her next project.
