From the age of 13, Patricia Chafe has been composing and performing on radio, television and in public with various Celtic artists throughout the Maritimes, United States and United Kingdom. Her piano accompaniment and original music have been recorded by many Cape Breton artists, while her works have been requested from artists in Spain, Australia, United States, Ireland and China. Along with writing and performing, Patricia, a classically trained musician, also teaches and provides workshops in Celtic piano and accompaniment. She conducted an international music education workshop for the Cape Breton Regional School Board, "The Classics Meet Cape Breton Fiddle", which featured her arrangements and compositions, in October 2004. She is a versatile artist, able to combine her Celtic heritage with her classical background, in a unique and pleasing manner.
