About the Author: There is a difference between a folksinger and someone who sings folk songs.

To become a folksinger you must go beyond performing and actually live and share the music.

Patrick Costello is a folksinger.

Growing up in rural Chester County Pennsylvania and the suburbs of Philadelphia, Patrick Costello spent his formative years learning the language of music from seasoned musicians in places as diverse as "Dutch Country" cornfields and Philadelphia subway stations. Patrick was introduced to the banjo, old time music, the blues, fingerstyle guitar and much more by an army of old timers who just wanted to pass on the core skills of their craft.

As a musician, teacher and author Patrick is dedicated to sharing the spirit of folk music. He continues to pass on the legacy of sharing and fellowship that inspired him with friends, students and customers all over the world.

Patrick now resides in Crisfield, Maryland on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. He is currently putting the finishing touches on his fifth book. The How and the Tao of Folk Guitar Volume Two: Getting Good is scheduled for release in the Fall of 2005.
