(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.

Evie Ladin Band Mt Airy Fiddler's Convention: Thrilled and honored to report I won a 2nd Place Folk Song ribbon in a contest where it is widely known you are 95% more likely to win if you are from Mt Airy or environs. I had not been back to the festival since moving to Cali in 2000, and was heartened to know...it was the same as ever. Hot tunes in the heart of the NC mountains, where Tommy Jarrell and Benton Flippen held court, the home of Andy Griffith and all things Mayberry, and lots and lots of old friends from around the country. Sang into the wee hours, clogged on coolers, lived on corndogs and coffee and saw dawn while raging on the banjo. Oh, and the BBC filmed us "playing music just for ourselves?" with an interview from Reginald D. Hunter. A fantastic start to the summer indeed.

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.
