Patty Larkin

Patty Larkin was raised in the Midwest and is a descendant of a long line of Irish American singers and taletellers. She studied jazz guitar and voice at the Berklee College of Music where she was later awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Music. She stopped by for a Kitchen visit with Page in the spring of 1990. JAMinc is pleased to present Page’s Kitchen…the Swamp Sessions, with Patty Larkin.

For your listening pleasure and historical perspective, JAMinc is proud to present the full 35-program season of Page’s Kitchen…the Swamp Sessions as previously aired on VPM Music and The Breeze. These Americana allstars appeared on the late Page Wilson’s Out O’ The Blue Radio Revue some three decades ago. They were all live, one-take recordings made in various Richmond studios at the time and stand as a fitting tribute to those artists and to Page for having the taste, drive and gumption to lure them into his make-believe lair, deep in the Chickahominy Swamp. We’re deeply grateful to Jude Schlotzhauer and Virginia Blue Wilson for entrusting us with these priceless master tapes and to Guy Spiller and Charlie Reilly for carefully converting them from analog to digital. Sincere thanks to our loyal sponsors: Digital Video Group, the Scott Street Family and the members of VPM.
