Patricia Barber Quartet at Portland PDX Jazz Festival at Winningstad Theatre
Patricia Barber is truly is a musician’s musician, pulling out all the stops in her performances. Recognized as one of the foremost songwriters of our time, the Los Angeles Times has compared her, more than once, to the likes of Joni Mitchell and Peggy Lee. Barber has an uncanny knack for embedding complex layered music and verse marked by exquisite elegance, strange commentary, and brilliant, funny surprises. The New York Times called her a “literary critic, philosophy student, and needling social commentator rolled into one." Not only is Barber in high demand for her performance, but sought after for master classes, workshops and lectures throughout the world. She also holds a faculty position at the University of Illinois Chicago.
