Patchouli and Terra Guitarra -- master guitarist Bruce Hecksel and singer-songwriter, guitarist Julie Patchouli -- return to the Boathouse next Tuesday, (August 8).
The concert by the husband and wife couple, is proudly sponsored by the Schroon Lake Arts Council.
The duo has been described as “one of the top nuevo-flamenco groups in the world”, with a #1 and two top 5 internationally charting albums and multiple Album of the Year nominations.
Patchouli is a folk festival headliner and Public Radio favorite with pure, haunting lead vocals and beautiful harmonies. Their sound, depth and virtuosity is described as “Simon and Garfunkel meets the Gipsy Kings” and “taking a yoga class in a field of running mustangs."
Their soulful fusion of blazing Spanish and world guitar instrumentals, spine tingling vocal harmonies, and epic folk rock anthems are infused with a visible onstage chemistry. An extraordinary bond is immediately apparent as two guitars merge into one acoustic wall of sound and their innovative, percussive flat-picking and hybrid fingerstyle techniques leave even astute listeners wondering where the drummer is.
