Pat Moore


Pat Moore is an engaging, warm performer whose songs will take you on a musical journey with her unique blend of roots and country music. Pat pours her heart and soul into creating and performing her music. Her strong clear voice has a warm and expressive quality, as perfectly suited to a rich ballad, as it is to an up-tempo power song. She moves easily from the storytelling of the singer/songwriter genre, to the lonesome sound of traditional country and bluegrass.

Her much acclaimed debut album The Time has Never Been Better has been followed up with a heart and soul wrenching country album, Take it to Heart.

Born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Pat grew up in a house filled with music, from show tunes to Peter, Paul, & Mary, and Gordon Lightfoot; and later jazz masters like Ella Fitzgerald and Ray Charles to bluegrass legends like Bill Monroe, and Flatt and Scruggs. As a young girl she would sing harmonies with her sisters while doing the supper dishes – songs from the Momas and Papas, and Simon and Garfunkel.

Pat continues to write, and performs solo, and in various combinations with members of the Vinyl Frontier – Pat McLaughlin, Ann Downey, Al Bragg, and Alistair Dennett. She has also returned to bluegrass, with the resurrected Maple Hill Bluegrass. She is also the creator and producer of the annual Ottawa Opry in support of Amnesty International, as well as producing and presenting the annual Christmas GOOSE concert in aid of the Ottawa Food Bank. Pat is also the author of a not-for-profit children's book, Clean Water for Lukong, published in 2011.
