Justin Patterson and Laura Lynn Danley, aka Ten Penny Gypsy, have been following the beat of their own drum for years. A fortuitous, chance encounter at a songwriter showcase in Arkansas changed their destiny and direction, and this alt-country Americana duo was formed. Ten Penny Gypsy was honored to be among the final top five nominees in three categories for the 2018 Arkansas Country Music Awards: “Album of the Year”, “Americana/Roots Artist of the Year”, and “Vocal Group of the Year”.
“Justin reminds me of what would happen if James Taylor and Gordon Lightfoot had a love child”, muses David Hughes, a promoter with Unknown Legends Artists in Hot Springs, AR. “He writes insightful, heartfelt, and intelligent lyrics. His songs can be haunting one minute and turn rockabilly the next. He is a refreshing voice and talented writer”. The latter could also be said of his musical partner, Laura Lynn Danley who is very reminiscent of Tammy Wynette or Joni Mitchell. She has an intriguing and infectious personality, with a vulnerability that draws you in. Hot Springs Village POA presents Ten Penny Gypsy at the Woodlands Auditorium on January 24th at 7pm. Tickets are $15 each or can be purchased with the Winter at the Woodlands package and receive both shows for only $25.
