Patty Larkin (b. June 19, 1951, Iowa) is a Boston-based singer-songwriter. She trained at the Berklee College of Music before pursuing a solo career in folk music.

Her songwriting has been praised for its wit, and her technical guitar playing has also received praise (which she made light fun of in her feminist song, Not Bad for a Broad).

In 1990, she joined Christine Lavin, Megan McDonough, and Sally Fingerett to form the Four Bitchin’ Babes, with whom she toured and recorded one album.

In 2005, Larkin produced La Guitara, a compilation of songs performed by female guitarists designed to answer the question, “Why are there no great female guitar players?” with the answer being that “There are–and here they are.”

    I forgot Jeff Linsky on my list. I first heard a track of his SOLO album in 1998 and finally managed to buy it last week.

    I learned of her on a gem of a record called La Guitara (gender bending strings ) a pure accident really. I picked it up because i love the sound of the instrument

    Good songs! Hate to be pedantic, but the version of 'The Book I'm not Reading' is from the album 'A Gogo' not 'Perishable Fruit'.

    I wasn't crazy about the first song of hers I ever heard (Wolf at the Door), but then I listened to more of her songs; she is simply amazing. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship. :)

    Agreed. I'm pretty sure there's not an age limit on decent music.
