Patrice Fisher & Arpa – March 2016 Residency says
Latin jazz harpist, Patricia Fisher favors the music of Brazil and Cuba, saying that, not only is the harp ‘comfortable’ harmonically with the music, but that she herself is drawn to the rhythmic complexities and syncopations: “that’s what makes you want to dance.” Patrice is a graduate of Tulane University and University of New Orleans. She lives in New Orleans, where she has been composing and performing since the 1980’s. She has also appeared at many international jazz festivals with her group, “Arpa,” in locations such as Germany, Brazil, Mexico and Guatemala. Patrice has 15 CDs of original music, the latest being “Resilience.” She has performed for more than 30 years at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Patrice also performs Celtic music and is director of the New Orleans Celtic Harp Ensemble. Patrice regularly performs throughout the world as a guest artist with international jazz musicians.

“An unexpected delight!” raves David Fricke of Rolling Stone Magazine. Gene Scaramuzzo of Gambit newspaper says “There are many sides to this local composer/harpist. It’s not unusual to see her play a classical gig in the morning and a music club at night. Strong rhythms form the undercurrent of her instrumental music with Arpa.”

Patrice Fisher & ARPA will perform at the Mint on Friday, March 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th at 2pm. Admission will be $5 and available at the door or online.
