Pat has been writing and performing songs all her adult life. Her songs have been praised highly by Pete Seeger, Peter Yarrow, and others. They have a strong folk influence, and cover issues such as peace, religion and the environment.

One of her songs, "Peace Pilgrim", is featured in part on Pete Seeger's Grammy-nominated album, "The Storm King". She has three solo albums: "Full Circle" (2009); "Do I Know My Song Well Enough to Start Singing Yet?" (2012); and "Something Beautiful" (2017).

Pat is also available to perform Unitarian Universalist services or community presentations on topics such as: folksingers Pete Seeger, Malvina Reynolds, or Phil Ochs; peace advocate Peace Pilgrim; and the fight for women's suffrage through song.
