About the Event

neo-trad kinetic roots trio Tenacious, innovative string musicians, the Evie Ladin Band –  Evie Ladin, Keith Terry and Erik Pearson – throws down captivating,  truly entertaining live shows. Grounded in Appalachian old-time  repertoire, seasoned in African-diaspora roots, writing from life in  modern cities, blurring the lines between music and dance, the  polyrhythmic heat of Evie’s clawhammer banjo, resonant voice, real  stories and rhythmic dance have been heard from A Prairie Home Companion  to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Their performance experience is a stand-out.Following up on two 2019 releases – their fourth of adventurous originals Caught On A Wire and Evie’s first totally trad fiddle/banjo duets Riding the Rooster – the band releases an EP of funky covers Playing our Hand in 2020.“A truly original sound in new old-time Americana,” says fRoots, while Pop Matters says “Ladin possesses a keen songwriting sense and a stable of strong musicians to back her up.

San Francisco Chronicle Feature The title track leads off the new album with a shot of energy and  sunshine… creating a relationship story line from first touches to last  regrets, the record is as much a folk operetta as it is a story told in  banjo and lyrics. But it’s the energy of the playing that keeps the  listener engaged.Founder, Clifftop Neo-Trad Band Contest 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.

Evie Ladin was born and raised on Southern music, from inner city  Baltimore to Oakland, and has taken home ribbons in folk song from Mt  Airy, NC Fiddler’s Convention, and Neo-Trad Band from the Appalachian  Stringband Festival, Clifftop, WV. “She can write, she can sing, and she  pulls back from the saccharine brink with wit – a sharp intelligence,”  Grant Alden, No Depression.fROOTS, UK Think Rhiannon Giddens with less publicity, and you will not be far wrong!Keith Terry (bass, Body Music, vocals) is a renowned percussionist/rhythm dancer, and the founder of the International Body Music Festival.  A pioneer in contemporary Body Music, Keith produces large-scale  intercultural collaborations and education. Keith brings a cinematic ear  to playing bass as tonal percussion, with bells, box, body and toys.Erik Pearson (guitar,  banjo, vocals) is a musician’s musician with the Crooked Jades,  storyteller Diane Ferlatte, and his solo projects. His original banjo  tune “Fork & File” was the soundtrack for a rapids rafting scene in  Sean Penn’s movie Into the Wild.
