Dynamic American roots music and dance
Based in Oakland, California, multi-talented singer, songwriter, clawhammer banjo player and step-dancer Evie Ladin grew up surrounded by traditional Appalachian music and dance, but also brings an urban edge and contemporary vision with her original songwriting and her work in percussive dance. A sensational live performer, Evie was formerly the driving force behind San Francisco stringband The Stairwell Sisters and since 2010 has released three albums under her own name.
Keith Terry takes care of percussive duties on double bass, cajon and more, and joins Evie in dance elements of the duo’s shows. Founder of the International Body Music festival and a skilled proponent of the art, Keith has performed at prestigious venues across the world. He and Evie met on the dance floor, and they live a double life between the folk/Americana circuit and the body music scene they helped create – both elements are beautifully integrated into their live show.
“Evie Ladin is a natural entertainer with a gift for infusing folk practices with contemporary verve.” San Francisco Chronicle
