Instrumental Songwriter Lynn Patrick to Play at eTown Hall in Boulder  

Boulder, CO, April 22, 2024 -- Lynn Patrick has been creating beautiful instrumental guitar music for more than 30 years and on May 16th, she will perform in front of her first large audience in more than ten years when she brings her music to the eTown Hall stage. “I have spent the last ten years recording albums, teaching students guitar, being outdoors and spending time with friends,” said Patrick. “When I was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer, the summer of 2022, every moment became even more important. After having so much love come from my family, friends, and fans to help me get through it, I realized I wanted to get back to playing live for them again. When my recent ETown Cafe show sold out in a few days, I was blown away by the reception. 

Lynn’s tunes have helped to create the mood and soundtrack for documentaries, such as Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild, Ocean Mysteries With Jeff Corvin, Mariel Hemmingway's "Running From Crazy" along with airplay on the Music Choice “Soundscapes,” Apple Music, Spotify and Sirius XM “Spa” radio channels as well as having over two million streams on Pandora last year. Her songs have also appeared on TV’s, The Young and the Restless, the Weather Channel and NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Back in her live performing days she has performed in venues all across the country from Red Rocks in Colorado to the famed Bitter End in New York City. Lynn has been a past recipient of The Independent Music Awards best new age song twice and her song “Everything Changes” was elected as a finalist for the USA Songwriting Competition.

Boulder's Daily Camera wrote: “With her mix of intricate, happy-sounding acoustic guitars, Lynn Patrick composes the unofficial soundtrack to life in Boulder...instrumental songs that range in mood from upbeat and energetic to reflective and meditative.” The Denver Post expressed, “There’s burnished gold in her guitar playing.” Denver's Westword Magazine said: ”Patrick plays acoustic music of the brightest sort" and the Boulder Weekly described Lynn's On the Wind CD as "an amazing collection of instrumentals for any guitar lover, from quick-pick fretwork to soothing serenades. This is local music at its finest.”

"Despite the diversity of styles, a common thread runs through all of Lynn’s songs: every one of them has an uncanny knack for uplifting the environment. A features writer of a local journal wrote: "Swimming with dolphins must feel something akin to experiencing the emotional dimension of Lynn Patrick´s music." Yet another reviewer called her music " …joyous whimsy, as uplifting and happy as star gazing." That´s because Lynn´s music unpretentiously but unmistakably conveys a sense of soaring freedom -- that sensation in the region of your heart that reminds you of being a child and swinging really, really high, until the chains slackened and you knew you could fly."
