Evie Ladin & Keith Terry

Innovative musicians/dancers with a quirky neo-trad soul, Oakland, California-based Evie Ladin & Keith Terry throw down original folk songs and deep interpretations of old songs, with the kinetic thrill of percussive dance.

Ladin sings and plays infectious clawhammer banjo, while Terry is a master percussionist. It was Appalachian string band music pared to the absolute minimum of accompaniment, but packed with an orchestra’s worth of rhythm. — Music City Roots, Nashville

A prolific singer-songwriter, percussive dancer and square dance caller, the polyrhythmic heat of Evie’s clawhammer banjo has been heard from A Prairie Home Companion to Celtic Connections, Lincoln Center to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.

She can write, she can sing, and she pulls back from the saccharine brink with wit – a sharp intelligence.Grant Alden, No Depression

Trained as a jazz drummer, Keith Terry brings tonal percussion to stand-up bass, is a renowned percussionist/rhythm dancer, the founder of the International Body Music Festival, and a collaborator with a host of inventive performers from Bobby McFerrin, Tex Williams and Robin Williams, to Turtle Island Quartet, Charles “Honi” Coles and Bill Irwin.

Rhiannon Scutt

An incredibly compelling artist, Rhiannon brings a new meaning to the word watchable. Armed only with her acoustic guitar, she is capable of silencing an audience the moment she utters the first line.

Earlier in her career, Rhiannon was one half of the ‘foot-stomping’ duo Rita Payne; Responsible for writing/arranging the music and managing the band. You can hear her unmistakable guitar style supporting frontman Pete Sowerby’s lyrics. They begun a partnership in 2011 which saw them release two critically acclaimed albums; Stories From A Suitcase (2012) / We’re Getting There, Aren’t We? (2014)

Famed for their soaring vocal harmonies and on stage chemistry, the duo achieved moderate success in their short tenure, gaining Martin Simpson, Richard Hawley and John McClure as loyal fans until Rhiannon’s departure from the duo in 2015.

With seven years experience touring the UK and Europe, Rhiannon is a confident, comfortable and captivating perfomer, and since going solo, her debut EP ‘#9’ (2018) is recorded in one night with four Sheffield musicians including Simon Stafford of Longpigs, & Finlay Stafford, winner of BBC’s young composer award 2015.

She is now recording her debut solo album for a 2020 release.

Your host for the evening will be Grateful Fred.
