The Boat House Theatre's acoustics will get a work-out Tuesday night when the dueling guitars of Patchouli take center stage. The nationally known and award winning songwriter Julie Patchouli and master guitarist Bruce Hecksel perform as part of the Schroon Lake Arts Council's Summer concert series. Watch one of the group's videos in our 2014 Summer Music and Arts Scene section, here.
From The Arts Council :
"Patchouli light up the air with sparkling acoustic sounds and their powerful contagious chemistry. Famous for that smiling voice that instantly turns a bad day into a good one, Patchouli’s down-to-earth, hopeful songwriting is “New American Folk” blending elements of folk, pop, flamenco and jazz with world beat rhythms. Patchouli’s sound has been described as “the harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel meet the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings. Fourteen years of non-stop touring has honed this classically trained duo into legendary performers, dubbed “the hardest working folk duo in America”. Having just released their 15th CD Terra Guitarra, Dragonfly in winter of 2012 and a new Patchouli Cd releasing Jan 2013, Patchouli is as busy in the studio as they are on the road, with 12 albums featuring their very own brand of original modern folk music and 4 CD’s under the name Terra Guitarra for their all instrumental Spanish style guitar project, including a holiday music CD Winter Solstice".
