Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase Patti DeRosa

Looking for contemporary acoustic folk peppered with rhythm and spice? Patti DeRosa is a folk alchemist conjuring up an eclectic mix of musical magic…it’s a soft finger-picking ballad and a jazzy groove, an island rhythm and an edgy rocker, a political commentary and a humorous rhyme…You never know what you’re going to get and DeRosa likes it that way. She revels in diversity, both personally and musically (when she’s not making music, she’s the President of ChangeWorks Consulting, which focuses on workplace and community diversity - ( Her music is a treat that is delivered with a stage presence that draws the audience in and warms the heart.

Her first CD, Paradise , was released in January 2005 and is played on radio stations across the country. She has opened for artists such as Vance Gilbert, Emma’s Revolution (Pat Humphries & Sandy O), Terence Martin, Lisa Moscatiello, Kevin So, Livio Guardi & Wilson Montuori, The Four Tops, Chandler Travis Philharmonic, and New England Weather, and was selected to perform at the 2006 Folk Alliance Martin Guitar Showcase and at the 2006 South Florida Folk Festival.
