Singer-songwriter Patrick Fitzsimmons has recently released his seventh CD entitled Bird Tree. It’s been getting airplay on many Vermont radio stations including The Point, WDEV and VPR’s All the Traditions.
As a young boy, Patrick loved the singer-songwriters of the ’70’s, drawn to the works of such artists as Cat Stevens, Paul Simon & Neil Young. Though his first instrument was the drums, he eventually picked up the guitar, coming full circle to follow the path of his childhood heroes.
Fitzsimmons was a finalist in the 2017 Just Plain Folks national songwriting competition in the Best Songwriter category as well as a 2011 and 2012 Solarfest national songwriting contest finalist and a three time Ploughshares national songwriting contest finalist. His songs have been placed in several independent films.
Patrick has shared the stage with some of the acoustic music scene's biggest names including Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, Roger McGuinn, Ellis Paul and Vance Gilbert.
