At 7:15 we speak with Kaia Kater

At the Black Sheep Inn on Saturday June 18th with Jadea Kelly, $12, 8:30 pm

Ottawa is one of Kaia’s home-towns. She spent 6 years in Wakefield (and went to school there) but also attended high school in Ottawa, and lived in Ottawa for two years. Kaia was part of the Ottawa Youth Orchestra and played a lot of music in and around there. And she cut her first banjo teeth at the erstwhile Ottawa Folk Festival.

Few are more conscious in their journey through Appalachian histories and the Canadian musical landscape than Kaia. Born in Montreal, Kaia has lived Winnipeg, Wakefield and, most recently, West Virginia, she now resides in Toronto. Her old-time banjo-picking skills, deft arrangements, and songwriting abilities have landed her in the spotlight in North America and the UK, garnering critical acclaim from outlets such as Rolling Stone, CBC Music and The Roots Music Report. Often praised for her capacity to sound new and old at once, Kaia anchors her music the space where tradition and innovation intersect.
