Music enriches life. But to Pat Webb music is his life. Pat was born in 1932 to a musical family in Missouri. His first instrument was the mandolin but by age 14 he had turned to the instrument that would be his steady companion, the guitar.
The troubador is steeped in the American musical traditions of country, folk, jazz and, of course, the blues. In the 1960's he was part of the folk revival scene in New York City. Pat has performed with such blues notables as Lightin' Hopkins, Yank Rachell, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.
Pat and his ancient Martin guitar have graced stages on both coasts and played various concert venues and festivals. Live music performances may be Pat's bread and butter, but he has expanded his talents to include music for film, TV and radio projects. The Washington Post calls Pat "a brilliant original artist."
Pat currently works with his son Chris and harmonica man Allen Stratyner. His latest release on CD is titled "Silver Lady and the Wild Stallion."
The title of his acclaimed Folkways album sums it up, "Pat Webb, Guitar."
