Musician Evie Ladin has lived in California since 2000 although she was raised in New York and became familiar with Old Time Music through her father’s love for the New Lost City Ramblers. Evie’s family hosted musicians when she was a young girl and her father bought her a banjo after John Cohen had been at their home and suggested the banjo as an instrument for her. Evie’s first banjo teacher was Bob Carlin and she learned the claw-hammer style of playing.
Evie lists Clarence Ashley and Kyle Creed, banjo players from the early-mid 1900s, as well as contemporary players Richie Stearns and Travis Stuart as artists who influenced her style. Evie describes the banjo as rhythm, melody and harmony. Evie and Keith Terry are touring the East Coast and will play at Chestnut House Concerts on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. It’s a weeknight so take advantage of bringing something to share at the potluck at 6:00 pm so you don’t have to make dinner. The show will begin at 7:00 pm.
The following is a video of Evie singing one of her original tunes, “Floating Downstream”.
