Punk legend Patti Smith’s music is wild, untamed and full of wisdom. Her first album „Horses“ was released in 1976 and is considered as a milestone of rock’n’roll history. With her vibrant and powerful sound, the artist paved the way for the Punk and New Wave Movement.
At the age of 73, the artist is still a nonconforming whirlwind. When Patti Smith sings, the audience can expect a fascinating performance that lets her eclectic character shine through. Her vivid lyrics are intensified by the power of rock’n’roll – a dynamic mixture of music and poetry.
Patti Smith visits Tollwood Festival with a selection of her favourite musicians: Her son Jackson Smith plays the guitar, Sebastian Rochford (known from Polar Bear and Pulled By Magnets) is in charge of the drums and percussion. Bassist and keyboard player is band member Tony Shanahan, who has been accompanying Smith for 25 years.
An artistic, feminist and musical Legend – Patti Smith really is the „Godmother of Punk“.
