Reading Odyssey member plays the main stage


The members of our reading groups are doing a lot of good things – including the co-founder of the Reading Odyssey – my close friend Pat Wictor. Pat, when he’s not reading the classics with us, is a full-time folk and blues musician.

This last weekend Pat performed on the main stage of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival – that’s a big deal in the folk world.

Reading Odyssey group 2 member Lisa Quinones captured this photo of Pat playing lap slide guitar – Pat and his style of lap slide guitar is becoming increasingly famous 😉

Building a career in folk and blues music is about one of the hardest things to do. So please join me in congratulating Pat.

I look forward to seeing Pat and some of you next week at the Met!



P.S. If you want to hear a sample of Pat’s music then visit his website:

    <p>I had the good fortune of seeing Pat perform in the Berkshires a couple of weeks ago, in a bit of a preamble to Falcon Ridge. He was terrific!</p><p>Not only can the man discuss Herodotus and Joshua/Judges/Ruth; he can deliver a great blues song too! I highly recommend seeing him in action!</p><p>Nancy</p>
