SWAP-ing her music out to the world: Beth Patterson
BETH Patterson, from New Orleans, is a dynamic multi-instrumentalist who plays the bouzouki (a type of guitar from Greece).
Her music style can be described as ‘SWAP’: Songwriter, World, Acoustic and Progressive.
Combining traditional Irish, Celtic and folk ballads with Cajun, world-beat and progressive rock influences, as well as her own creative songwriting and a unique sense of humour, Patterson has developed a very personal style of music.
A native of Lafayette, Louisiana, Patterson began her professional career in her teens as a classical oboist and a Cajun bass player.
At the Ballina RSL Club this Saturday from 6.30pm.
