Tuck& Patti’s fine folk-jazz to celebrate Cremona Musica

On Sept. 29th, the Ponchielli Theater in Cremona will stage a gala concert that will also involve the great guitarists Finaz (Bandabardò) and Diane Ponzio, international brand ambassador of Martin Guitars. Tickets available on www.vivaticket.it


Great live concerts will celebrate the new edition of Cremona Musica. On the occasion of the international Exhibition for high-quality musical instruments (organized by CremonaFiere from Sept. 29th to Oct. 1St 2017), a special gala concert will take place at the Ponchielli Theater in Cremona on Friday Sept. 29th at 9pm. Special guests: TUCK & PATTI and the guitarists FINAZ and DIANE PONZIO. Tickets for the event are already available both online on Vivaticket.it and at the ticket office of the Theater.


A special not-to-be-missed appointment for who loves jazz and folk music, for acoustic guitar lovers and, more in general, for all the lovers of live music. Suffice it to think that Tuck Andress (guitar) and Patti Cathcart (voice), better known as TUCK & PATTI have been riding high for 35 years now. They caught the audience attention with their first record “Tears of Joy” that really astonished guitarists and pop radios with the cover of Cyndy Lauper’s “Time After Time”.


Patti’s folk, gospel and rhythm’n’blues origins meet Tuck’s jazz style. Her vibrant contralto voice and her scat singing improvisation combine with his guitar virtuosity and with his ability to simultaneously perform chords, bass line and melody. Voice and guitar blend in a rare complementarity, thus originating a fine, minimalist, harmonious and musically eclectic union in which Patti writes and arranges and Tuck is the orchestra.

Tuck and Patti met in a band in San Francisco in 1978. “I was already a member of the band – explained Tuck – when Patti came for an audition. She entered, said hello to everybody and we started to perform. Just after a few second she was singing I realized I had found my musical twin soul”.
