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.
Pat Lamanna 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 CD Baby.
Pat was a 2019 winner of the South Florida Folk Festival Songwriting Contest.
