    Patchouli is:
    A folk festival headliner, Public Radio favorite, and award-winning songwriting duo with transcendent vocal chemistry, and that is not all folk. They are multi-disciplinary multi-instrumentalists. An extraordinary bond is immediately apparent as two guitars merge into one acoustic wall of sound and their innovative, percussive flat-picking and hybrid fingerstyle techniques leave even astute listeners wondering where the drummer is. “How you get two guitars to sound like a 10 piece band is amazing” -RJ Lannen

    Program description:
    The Landscape of Guitar: The Animated Painting Concert Experience
    Performing fiery Spanish guitar pieces like “Malaguena” to the gorgeous vocal harmonies of “Sounds of Silence” this duo takes the art of guitars to another dimension with their new animated painting concert experience. A colorful backdrop of lush vibrant painted landscapes based on the guitar theme flows thru the concert. Moving in 3D guitar birds fly through guitar mountains and over guitar rivers, cities, and oceans. The paintings come alive with music in this unforgettable surround art experience.

    Master guitarist Bruce Hecksel and singer-songwriter Julie Patchouli blend music from their two musical projects Terra Guitarra and Patchouli. Terra Guitarra is reviewed as “one of the top nuevo-flamenco groups in the world” - Zone Music Reporter. They have 4 top 5 internationally charting albums including Of Sea & Stars winner of “Best Instrumental Album of the Year 2017”. Public Radio favorite Patchouli features Julie’s sparkling lead vocals, beautiful duets and award-winning compositions. The Chicago Tribune says the duo’s “songs about harmony & healing inspire the human spirit”. See and hear “the harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, the guitar brilliance of the Gipsy Kings and the colors of Van Gogh”.
