Evie Ladin & Keith Terry

Evie Ladin and Keith Terry perform a hugely entertaining mix of Appalachian roots music, step dance and body percussion.

Multi-talented singer, songwriter, clawhammer banjo player and step dancer Evie Ladin grew up surrounded by traditional music. Playing banjo from the age of 8 and clogging since she was just 5, Evie is steeped in traditional Appalachian music and dance, but also brings a contemporary vision to her music.

A sensational live performer, Evie is a 2020 Jubilation Fellowship recipient, awarded to artists with an exceptional talent for bringing joy to people through music and movement. Versatile musician and dancer Keith Terry originally trained as a jazz drummer, and takes care of percussive duties on double bass and percussion, as well as joining Evie in dance elements of the duo’s performances.

Founder of the International Body Music Festival and a skilled proponent of the art of body percussion, Keith has performed and taught at prestigious venues across the world. Evie and Keith met on the dance floor, and they live a double life between the folk/Americana circuit and the body music scene they helped create – both elements are beautifully integrated into their live show.

“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.
– Folkworks, Los Angeles

Ivan Campo

Indie folk trio “Ivan Campo” met in the city of Preston whilst studying contemporary music at the University of Central Lancashire.

Their latest track ‘The Girl Who Dreamed’, with its light and uplifting aesthetic that combines wistful guitar hooks and sweeping vocals, is the first in a string of songs planned for release in 2021 leading up to their tenth album.

Their last album ‘Season of the King’ secured the band a 4th live session on BBC 6 Music, as well as a special appearance on prime time Spanish TV programme, “Late Motiv”, performing ‘The Bloodhound and the Fox’.Wednesday December 1st
