Possessing an “exquisite, velvety voice” (Folk Radio UK), a nuanced old-time banjo style, and thought-provoking lyrics, singer-songwriter Kaia Kater finds contemporary resonance in the musical treasures of Appalachian history. Born in Quebec of mixed Afro-Caribbean ancestry, Kater now splits her time between Toronto and West Virginia, where she immerses herself in balladry and traditional dance. In her original songs, she works to incorporate her unique perspective as a person of color in roots music, traveling deep into the wilderness of the past and addressing the complex racial history of the traditions themselves.
“Tremendous…where bluegrass meets Nina Simone.” —Guardian (U.K.) on Kater’s second album Nine Pin “Exquisite, velvety voice...a stunning album of understated clarity and insight, effortlessly bridging the past and the present to create a blueprint for the future.” —Folk Radio UK “Wise and talented beyond her years, a vibrant new voice for these troubled times.” —No Depression
Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
