Evie Ladin

Track #8 - "Jump Up & Go"

Evie Ladin (June)

California, USA


Banjo player, singer, songwriter, percussive-dancer, choreographer and square-dance caller, Evie Ladin loves to reconnect Appalachian music and dance with other African-Diaspora traditions. Heard from A Prairie Home Companion to Lincoln Center, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass to Celtic Connections, Ladin has taken home ribbons from Mt. Airy, North Carolina Fiddler’s Convention, and the Clifftop festival in West Virginia. An unusually entertaining performer, Evie tours with Keith Terry and the Evie Ladin Band from her home base in Oakland, CA. In addition to teaching banjo at Freight & Salvage and online at Peghead Nation, Ladin is an ace freestyle flatfooter, the Executive Director of the International Body Music Festival and director of the moving choir MoToR.
