Pat Wictor in Orangeburg, NY--Sunday, December 7!

Dear folks--

I'm doing a rare show in Rockland County this Sunday, returning to the Orangeburg library.  And the price?  A recession-busting FREE!  A great opportunity to invite friends and family, and share my music with them.  Here's the details:

Sunday, December 7, 2pm
Orangeburg Library
20 South Greenbush Road
Orangeburg, NY  10962

Other news:
•-My song "Simple Christmas" leads off the new Hudson Harding Christmas sampler, along side new Christmas songs by Jud Caswell, Tom Kimmel, Amy Speace, and others.  I'll have copies of the new sampler at the show.
•-I am "Mr. January" in the 2009 Naked Folk Calendar.  Yes, you didn't misread that.  The Calendar is an institution in folk music, a (tasteful and often humorous) collaboration between the Folk Alliance and photographer Jayne Toohey, to benefit musicians without health insurance.   I'll have copies at the show.  Sneak preview:    

May I Recommend:
•-My good friend, dobroist Abbie Gardner (Rockland County's own!), is hosting a new series at Googie's Lounge in Manhattan called "The Slide Sessions."  On Saturday December 20, she's hosting the father-son duo Beaucoup Blue.  Their blues and soul-based tunes always leave you feeling great.  I LOVE these guys--go see 'em!   For more information, see and

Have a great December, folks.  If you're doing anything weird, let me know--I'm gathering a list of weird activities for our weird times.  :-)

Warm regards,
Pat Wictor
