LittleHouse / Bio

About twice a month, cars crowd a West Simsbury, Connecticut street for a unique music event.They are not headed to a concert hall or theater; they’re headed for a barn…a converted barn, with a sophisticated sound stage replete with sofa seating,
high-tech mult-media projectors and a climate-controlled environment.

“A night out listening to the original music of LittleHouse is an intimate experience,” says singer/songwriter Joe Patrina. “Our ‘Welcome to the Barn’ atmosphere draws the audience to the inner circle.”

Joe formed LittleHouse in 2008. Since then, the group has amassed a loyal following. The music draws from various original American styles: country, rockabilly, rock, spiritual, folk and blues. It’s the music we have all listened to over a lifetime. As Joe describes it, “LittleHouse is a song-lovers band, with strong vocals and clear lyrics that are meaningful to adults of all ages. I call the blending of styles ‘Heartland Music.’”

“The idea of the Barn and the name ‘LittleHouse’ come from a trip I took to Virginia in the 1990s, to visit Janette Carter of the Carter family.

“She set me straight for sure about songwriting, and I watched her perform with her brother Joe - both in their 70’s - in their barn, which was next to their little house which so reminded me of our own little house in Connecticut, and I said to myself ‘Good enough for me.’”
