It’s been a busy and exciting few months for True North Music. I’ve been working with the superbly talented Evie Ladin & Keith Terry on putting together their May/June UK tour. Based in Oakland, California, multi-talented singer, songwriter, clawhammer banjo player and step-dancer Evie Ladin grew up surrounded by traditional folk music. Playing banjo from the age of 8 and clogging since she was just 5, Evie is steeped in traditional Appalachian music and dance, but also brings a contemporary edge to her work. A sensational live performer, Evie was formerly the driving force behind San Francisco stringband The Stairwell Sisters.
Trained as a jazz drummer, talented musician & dancer Keith Terry takes care of percussive duties on double bass, cajon and more. 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.
Check out the tour poster for concert dates – including a special double bill with Foghorn Stringband at my “home” gig in Sheffield – more details and ticket links for all shows coming soon!
