Upcoming Shows

Calendar widget under construction - all dates HERE.

(An) arrestingly fun show...clearly bursting with talent...The crowd clearly loved the energy from the performance, as every song, dance solo, and mid-number banjo breakdown was following by vigorous clapping and hollers. -- SMILE POLITELY

You don't often hear words like "traditional," and "authentic" paired with "innovative" and "unique," but Evie Ladin has brought them together brilliantly in the self-titled, debut album of the Evie Ladin Band, and the result is truly a high point in new old-time music.

Fall In!
Evie Ladin Band I'm always sad to see Summer come to an end, though for once I can say I am rested and ready to jump back into the fray of a very busy Fall. The season gave me some unexpected twists, but I am coming back stronger and wiser, and all the better for time spent in the woods and the water, playing and teaching music/dance. Kicking off this new season with a Yard Sale, emptying out the corners of our crib - then right into a slew of shows in the Bay and beyond - the upcoming amazing weekend of our hometown Berkeley Old Time Music Convention - followed by our East Coast/Gulf Coast Fall Tour. Thanks for telling your friends to come see us in CA, NY, PA, MD, TX and LA (that's Louisiana, people!). Sign up for Banjo Class before August 31 for the early bird discount!

REGISTER NOW: Dare to Be Square West, November 7-9, Oakland, CA. I am helping organize this insane weekend of learning to call square dances, history, jam, dance, hang - with master callers Phil Jamison (NC) and Kathy Anderson (OH). Geoffrey's Inner Circle, Downtown Oakland. Save the dates!

EVIE LADIN BAND MUSIC

ELB WON the Fan Vote for AMERICANA ALBUM OF THE YEAR by the Independent Music Awards!

Ladin's voice is a revelation. Clear, strong, delicate and emotive all at the same time...her exemplary examples of adult love songs deal with complicated subject matter, yet never lose their swing or get bogged down by maudlin sentimentality. In fact, the music is gorgeous.
--No Depression

This compelling record and her amazing band lineup should finally earn Evie Ladin the reputation she deserves in the folk music world...she has outdone herself this time. --Fiddlefreak

Deliciously quirky...imagine a mash-up of Michelle Shocked and Emmy Lou Harris! --New Times

Her rich and smoky voice resembles Natalie Merchant's, and her songs are as fetching as Nancy Griffith's...they're all catchy, with mature lyrics and skilled phrasing.
--Old-Time Herald
