Evie Ladin & Keith Terry http://www.evieladin.com/
Energetic and electrifying clawhammer banjo, bass, percussive dance, storytelling songs old and new, with nuanced, emotive vocals. An intimate, robust evening of acoustic music and dance, a skilled hybrid of American folk arts. (An) arrestingly fun show...clearly bursting with talent...The crowd clearly loved the energy from the performance, as every song, dance solo, and mid-number banjo breakdown was following by vigorous clapping and hollers. - Smile Politely 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 in the self-titled, debut album of the Evie Ladin Band, and the result is truly a high point in new old-time music. - FOLKWORKS 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, Evie's solo debut Float Downstream (2010), co-produced by Mike Marshall and Keith Terry, was quickly followed by Evie Ladin Band (2012), nominated for Americana Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards.
Keith Terry (bass, Body Music, vocals) is a renowned percussionist/rhythm dancer, and the founder of the International Body Music Festival. A pioneer in contemporary Body Music, Keith produces large-scale intercultural collaborations and educational outreach. In the DUO, Keith brings a cinematic ear to playing bass as tonal percussion, with bells, box, body and toys. His CDs and instructional DVDs are released by Crosspulse Media. Using any surface for it's rhythmic possibilities, Terry claps his hands, rubs his palms, finger-pops, stamps his feet, brushes his soles, slaps his butt and belly, pops his cheek, whomps his chest, skips and slides, sings and babbles and coughs, building his music out of a surprisingly varied register of sounds and clever rhythmic variations. --VILLAGE VOICE
