World-Touring Talent Makes a Summer Stop at Goodell Gardens
Patchouli and Terra Guitarra play in Edinboro
Friday, Aug. 3
Amber Wellington of Goodell Gardens & Homestead believes the nonprofit's upcoming concert is one the community won't want to miss.
Patchouli and Terra Guitarra — a duo whose most recent album was named the Zone Music Reporter's "Best Instrumental Album of 2017" — will perform Friday, Aug. 3 at the Edinboro-based botanical garden.
Wellington, Goodell Garden's executive director, has seen guitarist Bruce Hecksel and singer-songwriter Julie Patchouli perform in previous years and anticipates their annual return.
"Even though we've hosted this group before, each time they play here, it's a different show," Wellington said. "It's just the two of them but sounds like a full band."
Others too have been impressed by the talented musicians, who have toured worldwide. City Pages compared the duo's live shows to "taking a yoga class in a field of running mustangs," and The Chicago Tribune claims their songs have the power to "inspire the human spirit."
Gates open at 6:45 p.m. Food trucks will be available. People may bring lawn chairs, blankets and their own beer with proper ID.
Goodell Gardens receives grant funding from the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts and the Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority to offset the cost of its summer concerts.
The series wraps up Aug. 17 with a performance from Seann Clark, Colette Bone & Friends. — Tracy Geibel
