Pat Braden
Pat BradenThese are some of the accolades describing Pat Braden’s 90 minute, solo performance piece titled, “A Place to call Home”. The show is a unique blend of music, lyrics and stories of true life experience, reflecting on growing up in Canada’s north - Yellowknife, Northwest Territories - all written and performed by Pat Braden. Braden speaks to places such as the family cabin where he grew up and “the shacks and shanties of the Woodyard” in the Old Town of Yellowknife, describing them within the context of the northern lights, the bitter cold, the endless days of summer and the migrations marking the passing of the seasons. Pat sings of the people in his community, the eccentric characters, musicians and old timers who lived in those old town shacks and of friends, family and loves, celebrating their influence on his life. He weaves story into song, song into story, sometimes the spoken word resonating over a textural bed of music, a rolling chord pattern or a shimmering soundscape, generated on the Chapman Stick™. Braden is much more than a musician. He is a storyteller and songwriter who paints exquisitely beautiful images of the land and the people he loves.
