Evie Ladin |
The polyrhythmic heat 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, Ladin’s solo debut Float Downstream (2010), co-produced by Mike Marshall and Keith Terry, was quickly followed by Evie Ladin Band (2012), which won Americana Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards Vox Pop Vote. Based in Oakland, CA, Ladin tours solo, duo with Keith Terry, or with her expansive stringband – Evil Diane. In every combination, Ladin’s live performance is a demonstrative, gorgeous storm.
