Patricia Garner of Little Nectar will be opening for Maria Muldaur on Wednesday (Oct. 8).

Trio looking toward the future

Newly formed trio Little Nectar opening for American folk-blues singer Maria Mauldar.

Whether it’s singing in the school choir or performing on stage, music has always been a part of Patricia Garner’s life.

“Music has always been a part of my life and I hope it always will be,” Garner told the News Bulletin.

“I’ve always been into music. I come from a musical family in Nanaimo and my dad lives there and every two weekends I would go up and we would play music together and that is how we would connect,” Garner told the News Bulletin.

On Oct. 8, Garner will be opening for Maria Muldaur at the Queen’s with her recently formed band Little Nectar.

“I cannot believe I get to have the honour to open for someone as experienced as Maria,” she said. “I am really excited.”

Garner along with Jonny Miller and James Kasper make up Little Nectar.

“We just have sort of a soulful sweet sound,” Garner said.

Little Nectar will be playing a handful of covers and some original tracks.

Garner was originally part of a duo called PeaK, which disbanded nearly two months ago.

“It was time to have my own creative energy and have my own path,” Garner said about the breakup.

Garner is looking forward to the future with Little Nectar.

“The sky is the limit,” she said.
