Patrick Drake the Musician
From the tender age of 12, Patrick was fascinated with the guitar. Patrick is completely self taught having devoured hundreds of guitar magazines over his lifetime to turn that hobby into a passion.
Almost 40 years later he has taken that passion and turned it into something very special. From his first garage band, to his college band “Vendetta”, to the overwhelmingly popular Cape Breton group “The Accents”, Patrick has always been the go to guy when it comes to getting the guitar parts of a song “just right”.
He has shared the stage with The Beach Boys, Trooper, April Wine, The Rankin Family and Rita MacNeil during his days with The Accents.
Now a solo singer/guitarist, Patrick’s list of songs is a virtual walk through the history of classic albums and artists. Stairway to Heaven, Sultans of Swing, Hotel California and American Pie make up just a few of the hundreds of songs Patrick has mastered over the years. All these songs can be seen at any of the clubs and restaurants Patrick frequents in the Halifax area and also at private events/functions.
And lets not leave out the kids! Patrick will be embarking on his biggest project to date when he launches his “Patrick Drake – The Musical Magician” Family Show in the very near future. Stay tuned for details!
