Watch Now
A Musical Journey

Joe Patterson is a multi-instrumentalist composer and singer creating music in Panamá and Portland, Oregon.  He is a master of many styles on the violin, mandolins, and piano.  His music is influenced by folk, classical, jazz and rock; all blended to craft his special style of music.  Joe’s musical style might defy categorization but is American with hints from life on the beach covered with soaring melodies that let your imagination fly.


As with any musician, teaching and performing are an important part of your career.  Joe enjoys having a small studio of students of all abilities which not only passes along the musical tradition but also gives a lot in return.  You can watch  Joe performing live every Sunday at 6:00pm Panamá time on YouTube and Facebook.  Joe also performs locally in Panamá as a solo act or with his band FiddleJoe and the Fisherman.  In Portland, Joe returns to his classical training and joins the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra as part of the mandocello section.


As wonderful and fulfilling as it is to create music, there is more to life.  Joe lives in Panamá with his wife of 30 years, Becky.  He is an avid off-road cyclist and has a YouTube channel for the videos of his bike rides on the beaches and in the mountains.  Joe also enjoys walking and swimming in Panamá with Becky.  When in Portland there is lots of time for walking and riding bikes as well as enjoying the great food, wine and beer culture that exists in the Rose City.  Joe feels very lucky to have his life and music to share with you.  Please share this music with your friends.
