âPattersonâ¦a perfectionist with a big, round and dominating sound that turns every tune into a stimulating experience.â â Toronto Star
Catching the tail end of the 1960s provided Nova Scotia born guitarist Roy Patterson a broad palette of musical styles to draw from. After touring Atlantic Canada in dance bands during the 1970s, he made the move to Toronto & since then performed with many of Canadaâs elite. His style has drawn comparisons with some of the most respected guitarists in North America.
