Evie Ladin Band at Devil Mountain Coffee House

Tenacious, innovative string musicians/dancers with a pulsing neo-trad heart, the Evie Ladin Band throws down soulful folk songs.

Tenacious, innovative string musicians/dancers with a pulsing neo-trad heart, the Evie Ladin Band - Evie Ladin, Keith Terry and Erik Pearson - throws down soulful folk songs with a four-dimensional live show. Grounded in Appalachian old-time repertoire, seasoned in African-diaspora roots, writing from life in modern cities, blurring the lines between music and dance, "I had no idea!" is how audiences describe the ELB's captivating concerts. An Evie Ladin Band concert is a mingling of the deep Appalachian sound of clawhammer banjo, guitar, bass and percussive dance, with contemporary storytelling and original, conversational interplay among the band members. While myriad world and contemporary music influences permeate the band's choices, they never reach too far, remaining seamless and true to the stories they tell. Known as a driving force behind San Francisco's Stairwell Sisters, Evie Ladin is fluid in traditional Appalachian arts, even as she brings an urban edge and contemporary vision to her own stories, deep interpretations of old songs, contemporary percussive dance. Folk music in her family life, early urban hip hop in her teen life, diving deep into the African side of old-time country music and dance...Music, dance and song became inseparable. The polyrhythmic heat of Evie'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.
