Pat Lamanna will join April 4 Song & Story Swap over Zoom

Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley
Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.

Saturday, April 4, 7:00-9:00 p.m. Due to the ongoing pandemic restrictions,
this month's event will be conducted online via Zoom. To register, please
visit and click on the "Register" button at the top
of the page.

The featured performer at the April 4 Song & Story Swap will be
folksinger-songwriter Pat Lamanna.

Hudson Valley-based Pat Lamanna's repertoire is suffused with a sense of
social responsibility. Her songs, which have garnered praise from Pete
Seeger, Peter Yarrow, and others, cover issues such as peace, religion and
the environment.

She was Sonny Ochs' pick to perform in the Folk DJ Showcase at the 2012
conference of the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance. One of her songs, "Peace
Pilgrim," is featured in part on Pete Seeger's Grammy-nominated album, The
Storm King. She has three solo albums: Full Circle (2009); Do I Know My Song
Well Enough to Start Singing Yet? (2012); and Something Beautiful (2017).
Her recordings may be purchased on Amazon, Apple Music and other online

Pat was a 2019 winner of the South Florida Folk Festival Songwriting
