She is the Springville Songbird;
a regional treasure. Her roots are gospel, her home is in the country,
but her versatility ranges wide, and her repertoire is immense. Ask for
an old song and she sings it to you like youve loved it forever,
like youre hearing it for the first time. Then shell play
you a new one youll love even more. From plaintive cowboy ballads
to pop standards, through rock and roll to jazz, Patti can sing it all.
