March 25th– African-Canadian roots phenom Kaia Kater couldn’t have come on the scene at a better time. As a new generation takes the reins, American roots music is needed more than ever to remind us of the troubled pathways of our own history. Born of African-Caribbean descent in Québec, Kaia Kater grew up between two worlds: one her family’s deep ties to Canadian folk music in her Toronto home; the other the years she spent learning and studying Appalachian music in West Virginia. Kaia’s old-time banjo skills, jazz-fueled voice and deft songcraft have garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, BBC Music, and No Depression. Her 2016 release Nine Pin won a Canadian Folk Music Award and sent her on an 18-month touring journey from Ireland to Iowa many as the opener for Rhiannon Giddens. Kaia is currently working on her next album, due for release in early 2019. Take a listen to a new voice in roots, folk music.
