With Special Guest Diane Patterson
Widely considered a feminist icon, Grammy winner Ani DiFranco is the mother of the DIY movement, being one of the first artists to create her own record label in 1990. While she has been known as the “Little Folksinger,” her music has embraced punk, funk, hip hop, jazz, soul, electronica and even more distant sounds. Her collaborators have included everyone from Utah Phillips to legendary R&B saxophonist Maceo Parker to Prince. She has shared stages with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Bon Iver, Brand Carlile, Billy Bragg, Michael Franti, Chuck D., and many more. Her most recent albums include 2021’s Revolutionary Love and the July 2022 25th Anniversary Edition reissue of her iconic live album Living In Clip, both on her own label Righteous Babe Records. Her memoir No Walls and the Recurring Dream was released in May 2019 by Viking Books, and was a New York Times Top 10 best seller.
Award-winning songwriter, Folkgoddess Diane Patterson subverts the dominant paradigm with rocking acoustic guitar and ukulele, a mighty pen, and a woman's voice. Since 1989, Patterson weaves her original Mystic Acoustic Americana and unifying stories, planting seeds of love and revolution. Diane’s new album, Satchel of Songs, was recorded last year in New Orleans with platinum record-producer Mike Napolitano and features amazing supporting musicians such as Terence Higgins, Todd Sickafoose, Barbara Higbie, Alice DiMicele, Janelle Burdell, Joe Craven and Ani DiFranco.
