Oakland-based Evie Ladin, (www.evieladin.com) extraordinary clawhammer banjo player, singer, songwriter, and dancer, will perform with her husband, Keith Terry, bass player, singer, and king of body sounds (hand drumming and much more), will perform with an opening set by the very popular LA old time music trio, Triple Chicken Foot (www.triplechickenfoot.com) at Caltech on Saturday, August 24 at 8:00 PM. The performance will be in Beckman Institute Auditorium on the Caltech campus, at 400 South Wilson Avenue in Pasadena.
Evie Ladin grew up on the East Coast and has immersed herself in American roots music, African and American folk dance, and other cultural arts. After gaining national attention with the group, Stairwell Sisters, her second solo recording, The Evie Ladin Band, from 2012 was nominated as AMERICANA ALBUM OF THE YEAR by the Independent Music Awards. She is highly spirited and will surely get our room full of people moving, and her performances with Keith Terry are lots of fun and very visual. Triple Chicken Foot as opening act is much more than icing on the cake. Featuring Ben Guzmán on fiddle/mandolin, Mike Heinle on banjo and Kelly Marie Martin on guitar, this amazing old time trio has grabbed lots of attention performing in Southern California.
