Evie Ladin & Keith Terry - a Golden Link Online Concert!
“You don’t often hear words like ‘traditional,’ and ‘authentic’ paired with ‘innovative’ and ‘unique,’ but Evie Ladin & Keith Terry have brought them together brilliantly, and the result is truly a high point in new old-time music.” – Folkworks, Los Angeles
“Ladin sings and plays infectious clawhammer banjo, while Terry is a master percussionist. It was Appalachian string band music pared to the absolute minimum of accompaniment, but packed with an orchestra’s worth of rhythm.” –Music City Roots, Nashville
Innovative musicians and dancers with a quirky neo-trad soul, the Oakland, California-based duo of Evie Ladin & Keith Terry throw down original folk songs and deep interpretations of old songs, with the added kinetic thrill of percussive dance.
A prolific singer-songwriter, percussive dancer, and square dance caller, Evie Ladin has played her clawhammer banjo in a variety of venues, from A Prairie Home Companion to Celtic Connections, Lincoln Center to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
Trained as a jazz drummer, Keith Terry brings tonal percussion to stand-up bass, and is a renowned percussionist/rhythm dancer, the founder of the International Body Music Festival, and a collaborator with a host of inventive performers from Bobby McFerrin, Tex Williams, and Robin Williams, to Turtle Island Quartet, Charles “Honi” Coles, and Bill Irwin.
