Patty Jackson says
When Patty Jackson was 15 years old, she was given a free ticket to a Joan Baez concert. This changed her life forever.
Pretty soon. she was seen bicycling all over town with a guitar on her back, looking for the next jam, sing along or any opportunity to learn some new licks from the masters.
In the 80's and 90's, she was in a series of bands and duos playing pop cover tunes in bars and clubs throughout the central NY area.

In the mid 90s, she really hit her stride when she formed a trio called "Wildfire". A mellow fusion of folk, classical and jazz with guitar, flute, violin and stunning harmonies. Wildfire toured in NY and throughout New England playing to sold out audiences on college campuses, folk clubs and coffeehouses.
In the new year, Patty is embarking on some solo shows, revisiting her roots and developing some tunes that have been on the back burner for years. She is a shameless folk nerd, singing at open mics, nursing homes, community centers, art galleries and any place where people are foolish enough to give her the mic and a stage. With a voice like an angel, amazing guitar playing and some great stories, she is sure to keep the audience engaged and entertained.

One of the highlights of their career was to play for Hillary Clinton when she was running for NY State Senator. Wildfire recorded a self titled CD in 1999.

In 2001, Patty came to Colorado to be a student at the Song School in Lyons. She fell in love with the state and moved here in 2004. She joined "Resonance, The Women's Chorus of Boulder", where she hoped to find her next band. She did, and the trio "Somethin' About Lulu" was formed. With killer guitar licks, spot on harmonies and much hilarity, "Somethin' About Lulu" has always been a huge crowd pleaser. The band recorded a 12 song CD in 2005.
