The polyrhythmic heat and funk of Evie Ladin’s clawhammer banjo, resonant voice, real stories and rhythmic dance have been heard from A Prairie Home Companion to Celtic Connections, Lincoln Center to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Known as a driving force behind San Francisco’s Stairwell Sisters, Evie’s solo debut Float Downstream (2010
) was produced by famed mandolinist/composer Mike Marshall and percussionist Keith Terry. Sing Out! magazine reports “Solid song craft performed wonderfully end to end.”

Keith Terry (bass, Body Music, vocals) is a renowned percussionist/rhythm dancer, and the founder of the International Body Music Festival. Body, bells, box, toys, Keith approaches bass as tonal percussion, and adds delightfully unusual elements to the show. A surprising and evocative mix of acoustic music and dance, Evie & Keith present a skilled hybrid of American folk arts.

Using any surface for its rhythmic possibilities, Terry claps his hands, rubs his palms, finger-pops, stamps his feet, brushes his soles, slaps his butt and belly, pops his cheek, whomps his chest, skips and slides, sings and babbles and coughs, building his music out of a surprisingly varied register of sounds and clever rhythmic variations. –VILLAGE VOICE
