Evie Ladin & Keith Terry UK tour – May/June 2017
Evie Ladin & Keith Terry are well known to many on the FOAOTMAD scene. Multi-talented singer, songwriter, clawhammer banjo player and step-dancer Evie Ladin has been playing banjo from the age of 8 and clogging since she was just 5. A sensational live performer, Evie was formerly the driving force behind San Francisco stringband The Stairwell Sisters. Talented musician & dancer Keith Terry takes care of percussive duties on double bass, cajon and more, and joins Evie in dance elements of the duo’s shows. Founder of the International Body Music festival, Keith has performed at prestigious venues across the world. We’re still looking to fill a couple of dates, so if you might be interested in hosting a house concert or workshop, please give Maria a shout on the FOAOTMAD Facebook group, email admin@truenorthmusic.co.uk or contact her through her website www.truenorthpromotions.co.uk.

“Duets” A new CD by Mark Olitsky and Cary Moskovitz
Last July at the Appalachian String Band Music Festival, Mark had just finished making his new 5-string “minstrel” banjo. Cary brought one of his 4-string “plectrum” banjos to Mark’s camp. We really liked the combination of our banjos and our styles. We played banjo duets together a number of times that week (some of you probably saw us!) and we decided to pursue the collaboration. In early December, we met at Joe Dejarnette’s Studio 808A in Floyd Virginia and recorded the tracks for our CD, “Duets.”

We expect to have the music and artwork to the manufacturer in March and have CDs in hand by April. We decided not to use a crowdfunding mechanism, but if we had a sense of how many folks might like a copy, it would help us know how many to manufacture. At https://olitskymoskovitz.wordpress.com you can listen to some samples of our music in a short video. If you would like to pre-order one or more CDs, please let us know by February 20. You don’t need to pay now–just let us know if you think you’ll want to order any CDs and give us your contact info through a Google Form at https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSc71KwAKmcoAEYmq1…/viewform. We’ll contact you when the CD is out. And please share this with anyone you know who might be interested!
