About the Event, innovative string musicians/percussive dancers, Evie Ladin & Keith Terry combined their Oakland, CA-based groups Evie Ladin Band / Keith Terry & Crosspulse for a big festival commission. The experience of both performers and audience was so hot, it sparked the desire for more.“You  know what a grand stage that is to fill on Saturday night, and you put  together an extravaganza of sights, sounds, and energy that lifted  everyone.” – festival organizerSpectacularly  crowd-pleasing, the concert is a dynamic flow between virtuosic,  harmonic roots music and percussive dance/Body Music. While Evie’s band  has the roots of Appalachian stringband music and songwriting, and  Keith’s group is a multicultural percussion ensemble, the combination  serves up explosive body percussion, quintet harmonies and a deep dive  reconnecting African diaspora and Appalachian cultures with a big dose  of fun. Evie Ladin on clawhammer banjo and guitar, Keith Terry on bass  and drums, Bryan Dyer on bass vocals and beatbox, Amber Hines on  harmonies and percussion, and Erik Pearson on bass and resophonic guitar  – the group dances, sings, and continues to draw the audience in with  seamless, surprising and engaging festival sets.


  • Evie Ladin Band

    The best example I have seen of a Neo-Trad band’s sound being authentically anchored in old time music but extending it into new and entertaining directions.
