Community Sing Song Leader
Madden's rich alto voice has enlivened the area folk music scene
for 20 plus years, often lending support to an array of local and
national causes. As a member of the popular trio, Second Opinion,
she has been a spirited presence, reflecting the Celtic claim made
upon her by a musical Irish clan.
These days, Pat is singing with Sally Potter, also of Second
Opinion, and they released a new CD in the fall of
2005, "It's About Time."
Madden remembers a childhood where any combination of relatives
and friends would gather around a piano, whether in someone's living
room or someone's restaurant. The harmonies were full, the songs
were endless. A singing festival? Pat is right at home.
