Kate MacLeod

Kate MacLeod's new recording, Blooming, will "rock your world" in one way or another. Kate went to Nashville, TN to record this project in March, 2009. With Tim O'Brien as producer, David Ferguson as engineer, and musicians Darrel Scott, Byron House, and Kenny Malone, Kate recorded an eclectic collection of her original songs. The outcome is a culmination of her love and experience with the styles of American music that she has been performing most of her life. On this recording you will hear twelve songs expressed in shades of country, folk, bluegrass, folk-rock, pop, art-song and sounds of modern Americana music held together in a project that is full of personality and ease.
Kate is a sought-after performer, studio musician, and leader of master classes and workshops, who is best known for her original songs and her unique fiddling style. Her songwriting style and live performances display an unbreakable link between traditional music and cutting-edge contemporary songwriting. She has been hailed as one of the “Ten Acts to Watch” by the editors of the MusicHound Folk Essential Album Guide. Originally from the Washington D.C. area, she is based in Salt Lake City and tours throughout the United States and Europe. Her music has been described by reviewers as reflecting the panoramic western landscape, perhaps due to her long residence in Utah. Kate's songs have been featured on nationally syndicated radio shows including Tom May's “River City Folk,” the holiday program hosted by Judy Collins, “Peace on Earth,” and have been sung by others on “A Prairie Home Companion.” You will find fans of many music genres in an audience gathered to hear Kate MacLeod perform. Her songs catch the ears of new artists, traditional singers, bluegrass musicians, celtic musicians and songwriters of many styles. Her songs find new life through other musicians at jam sessions and performances throughout the country and have been recorded by artists from California to the Czech Republic.
