Clarsach, Guitar & Vocals
For the past decade I have been entertaining guests in more than twenty of the stately houses and castles in Scotland. My most frequent haunts being Culzean Castle, Ayrshire; Glamis Castle, Angus; Glenapp Castle, Ballantrae and Stirling and Edinburgh castles. I also entertain guests at Gleneagles Hotel, Perthshire; Turnberry Hotel, Ayrshire and on several ocean liners including the Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2).
I have played Clarsach and sung at Burns Suppers & Scottish Evenings as far afield as Munich, Germany; Stavanger, Norway; the natural history museum in Kensington, London; the 12th century Abbey of Thiron - Gardais, central France; and Kinnoul monastery, Scotland.
Other trips abroad have included the 3 times to the L'Orient Folk Festival in Brittany, France; Evansville, Indiana, USA where I represented Europe at a dinner featuring traditional musicians from all six continents.

My engagements for the coming year include visits to some stately houses and castles that are "new" to me, and I look forward to performing in "uncharted territory" as well as renewing old acquaintances.

"Patricia has the most delightful speaking voice I have heard in a long time. But it's when she sings that her voice is pure joy. High in tone, clear as a bell, think sparkling frost on a sunny day, think clear tinkling water in a highland burn and you're only half way there. This lady has the voice of an angel".
