In the music world, you could very easily nominate Patty Larkin as Milwaukee’s favorite daughter. Larkin grew up here before moving on to make a name for herself for her proficiency as a musician and a songwriter.
Larkin recorded her first album in 1985, and 12 more followed. She also has played as part of the Four Bitchin’ Babes, and has championed the cause of fellow women guitarists. Larkin has long lived in Massachusetts, but returns to her hometown every so often, including this fall, when she visited family and played a show to benefit the Urban Ecology Center.
