Patchouli's Back to Anna Maria Island by popular demand
Nationally touring, award-winning songwriter Julie Patchouli and master guitarist Bruce Hecksel light up the air with sparkling acoustic sounds and their powerful
contagious chemistry. Each time they appear at the Arts and Crafts Festival to benefit the AMI Butterfly Park they
have fans dancing in the aisles, bringing lounge chairs to relax and listen and develop more of a following. They are famous for that smiling voice that instantly turns a bad day into a good one, Patchouli’s down-to-earth, hopeful songwriting is “New American Folk” blending elements of
folk, pop, flamenco and jazz with world beat rhythms. Patchouli’s sound has been described as “the harmonies of Simon& Garfunkel meet the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings. 12 years of non-stop touring has honed this classically trained duo into legendary performers, dubbed “the hardest working folk duo in America”. Having just
released their 13thCD Terra Guitarra, The Mother Night, Patchouli is as busy in the studio as they are on the road, with 10 CD’s featuring their very own brand of original modern folk music and 3 CD’s under the name Terra
Guitarra for their all instrumental Spanish style guitar project, including a holiday music CD Winter Solstice.
Patchouli presents the very top echelon of today’s acoustic performers, bringing the highest level of skill together with the passion, experience and joy that are a rare combination indeed.
