Biography

“Ireland’s Golden Tenor,” Frank Patterson was created and raised in Tipperary; announcing his motives to become vocalist on his 1st day of college, he performed as an associate of the neighborhood group the Wren Kids as a teenager before quitting college to operate in his mother’s printing business. Upon relocating to Dublin in 1961, Patterson researched vocal technique, and 3 years later on he came into the Feis Ceoil, acquiring home best honors in a minimum of four competions including oratorio, lieder as well as the German Yellow metal Cup. His achievement ultimately led to a contract using the Phillips label, and he also toured with Janine Micheau in a number of trips of Pelleas and Melisande. Although his early function was primarily within the traditional mode, as period used on Patterson flipped significantly towards pop, with a specific focus on traditional Irish ballads; frequently appearing along with his wife, concert pianist Eily O’ Grady, he performed sellout concerts just about everywhere, from London’s Royal Albert Hall to New York’s Carnegie Hall. Increasing to sustained prominence with the brand new recognition of Celtic music within the 1990s, Patterson noticed a lot of his previous recordings reissued for American viewers, and in 1998 starred within the PBS unique Ireland in Music, concurrently issuing an LP of the same name. Patterson passed away of a mind tumor on June 10, 2000; he was 61.
