Mudpuddle Shop Show
Submitted By Michael McNevin
On Saturday, November 19 enjoy a Mudpuddle Shop Show with Evie Ladin & Keith Terry (Duo), and McNevin & McClellan.
The polyrhythmic heat and funk 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) was produced by famed mandolinist/composer Mike Marshall and percussionist/bassist Keith Terry... Sing Out! magazine reports "Solid song craft performed wonderfully end to end." (http://www.evieladin.com/)
Joining Evie is Keith Terry (On bass, Body Music), a renowned percussionist/rhythm dancer and the founder of the International Body Music Festival (http://www.internationalbodymusicfestival.com/). A surprising and evocative mix of acoustic music and dance, Evie and Keith tease out gorgeous beds of new trad music that support Evie's ripe, catchy stories, and deep interpretations of old songs.
"She can write, and she can sing, and she pulls back from the saccharine brink with just enough wit - a sharp intelligence". -Grant Alden, No Depression
"Evie Ladin is a natural entertainer with a gift for infusing folk practices with contemporary verve." -San Francisco Chronicle
"Using any surface for its 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
