Singer/songwriter, Patricia Morrison's long resume and well-traveled passport are reflected in her songs, alive with the places and people she has met along the way, with a voice like Joan Baez and songwriting compared to Natalie Merchant, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell.

A classically trained singer/songwriter and music teacher who hails from New Mexico and Arizona, Patricia calls on folk, world, blues, gospel and classical influences to write her songs, which are marked by a care for humanity as seen through the stories of individuals. These stories take on a new life in her rich, soaring vocal lines and the gentle, undulating backdrop of her guitar.

Patricia's first album, "Downriver" was released in 2008 and she has a song on the 2009 "Food is Good...For the Body and Soul" compilation CD that benefits the Tucson Community Food Bank by reminding everyone that food unites us all and she has a full-length CD, "Flight" that was released in August 2010. Patricia has performed at farmers' markets, coffeehouses, benefit concerts, sacred spaces, bars, house concerts, festivals and rallies around the country.

In its fifth year, the Peace Festival is a day for people to be introduced to local organizations working to improve our community and the world while being entertained with live music. There are kids activities, a dance performance, vendors, food and 4-5 bands. Thank you for making this year's Peace Festival a reality!
