Evie Ladin Live

December 7, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


The Polyrhythmic heat of Evie Ladin’s claw hammer banjo, resonant voice, real stories and rhythmic dance have been heard from a Prairie Home Companion to The Lincoln Center, Celtic Connections to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Brazil to Bali. A prolific creator and gracious facilitator, Evie grew up steeped in traditional folk music and dance up and down the East Coast, bringing a syncretic vision to new work while holding fast to the roots.

Evie writes clever lyrics with mature arrangements, calls rowdy square dances for urban crowds, choreographs new body music/percussive dance for contemporary dance and film, leads seminars in movement anthropology, rocks straight-up old-time claw hammer banjo and gardens, from the vibrant home base of Oakland, CA. She’s won ribbons and arts fellowships, performed in sold-out concert halls and cozy living rooms, and toured around the world and to every US state except Florida. She’s never been to Florida…
