Evie LadinMake sure you join the party when the Evie Ladin Band opens the box on the toe-tapping material from their new CD! Tenacious, innovative string musicians/dancers with a quirky neo-trad soul, the Evie Ladin Band throw down music with an unusually creative and surprising live show. A superb banjo player and a clever songwriter with an enthralling voice, Evie is joined by Keith Terry (founder of the International Body Music Festival) on bass, body music, vocals, and percussion, Dina Maccabee (Real Vocal String Quartet) on violin, and Erik Pearson (Crooked Jades) on guitar and banjo.

Roots music enthusiasts from the Bay Area and beyond know Evie from her 10+ years with the great all-gal old-time band, The Stairwell Sisters, from appearances on A Prairie Home Companion and stages from Celtic Connections to Lincoln Center, or from any of the her numerous intriguing side projects as well as the banjo and singing classes she teaches at the Freight. Dubbed "a natural entertainer with a gift for infusing folk practices with contemporary verve" by The San Francisco Chronicle, Evie barrels full-steam out of trad old-time into the urban environs of Oakland. All we can say is, hop on board!
