Well, slowly but surely, I'm starting to play live music in front of live audiences again. Check out the upcoming shows, and as always...

"Thanks for listening!"

Welcome to my website, where you'll find a bunch of stuff about me...what I'm doing or going to do soon, what music I'm making or have made or have helped others make, what I look like or used to look like...more than you've ever wanted to know about Patterson Barrett.

There's a music player at the bottom of each page for listening, and you can visit the guestbook page and leave a comment (please do!) 

upcoming shows!

w/The Lost Austin Band

The Saxon Pub, 1320 South Lamar, Austin

When I first came to Austin, it was a couple of years after recording with Jerry Jeff Walker (on LA Freeway, among others), and much to my delight, the Cosmic Cowboy scene was in full swing. My band Partners In Crime followed a bunch of great groups in and out of venues—Willie, Jerry Jeff, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Lost Gonzo Band, Denim, Plum Nelly.

Imagine players from those bands sitting around reminiscing and playing all of the great songs of that era—that's the Lost Austin Band: Craig Hillis, Ernie Gammage, Bill Browder, David Moerbe, and yours truly. Great fun, great music

w/Denim

The Saxon Pub, 1320 South Lamar, Austin

When I first arrived here in Austin, way back in 1974, I was inspired by hearing a band called Denim. Their music immediately spoke to me, rich with wonderful melodies, great harmony singing, and intelligent songwriting. I actually covered a couple of their tunes with my own band. I sort of became the guest that wouldn't leave, and eventually these fine folks accepted me in the group. Now, over 50 years after their founding, we're still playing many of those great songs and a bunch of newer ones. (Even one of mine!). Don't miss an opportunity to hear this bunch.
