A deeply evocative banjo player, clever songwriter and rhythmic dancer, with a powerful voice that draws you in – EVIE LADIN is “a natural entertainer with a gift for infusing folk practices with contemporary verve,” San Francisco Chronicle.

Longtime Stairwell Sister – San Francisco’s all-gal old-time teardown - Evie has appeared on A Prairie Home Companion, and stages from Celtic Connections to Lincoln Center, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and many more. Her solo debut Float Downstream (2010) produced by Mike Marshall and Keith Terry is "Solid song craft performed wonderfully end to end." Sing Out!

Barreling full-steam out of trad Old-Time into the urban environs of Oakland, CA, with side trips into a global percussive dance scene, Evie brings deep roots to collaboration with the BAND. Tenacious, innovative string musicians/dancers with a quirky neo-trad soul, the ELB throws down a new folk music with an unusually creative and surprising live show.

Evie penned most of the songs, but she leads off with the late Indiana songwriter Lotus Dickey’s Got You On My Mind, made funky. Her original Down to the Door, an invitation to a far-off lover, is a mash-up with the traditional tune Lost Girl, while He’s Not Alone is her classic country song of love on the road. Keith’s innovative approach to slap-bass, including the body of the instrument - creates the storm of Weathering. 5 Below is both deepest winter and an appeal against powerlessness. Songbird Blues/Backstep Cindy introduces Erik’s original tune, melodically percussed by Evie’s freestyle clogging – as later we hear Dina’s Build Me A House/Cypress Shuffle with Keith’s body music – two duets. The poetry of the Carter Family’s Shadow of the Pines has a lush, mournful treatment. Dime Store Glasses uses the punch of rhythm dance in a sassy tell-off to an old flame, and Coffeeshop brings us into a very familiar daily scene. The First Time is Ewan McColl’s familiar song made famous by Roberta Flack, here for the first time as a sick breakdown! The traditional Sugarbabe is a hypnotic trance of African bells, old-time banjo and blues slide guitar. Finally, Sleepy Eyed Joe is a rowdy tune, opening the door into the dance party that ends any good night.
