Using Carter Family songs as a jumping off place, we will work with simple three part harmony in this beautiful style. Finding simple harmony lines that sometimes weave around the melody, sometimes cross or create unisons, students will develop a better ability to hear the parts, as well as what gives the harmonies the old-time country sound, and power.

Evie Ladin is a banjo player, step-dancer, singer, and songwriter with a lifetime of experience in traditional American cultural arts. She grew up in a trad folk scene up and down the Eastern Seaboard of the US, travels the world, and calls the rich arts scene in Oakland, California home. With The Stairwell Sisters, all-gal old-time teardown, Evie performs traditional and original material on clawhammer banjo, vocals, clogging and hambone. With Keith Terry & Crosspulse, she performs rhythm-based multi-cultural music & dance works, bringing her Appalachian skills to collaborations with a variety of other cultural arts, including other styles with roots in the African Diaspora. Evie calls rowdy community square dances, performs for extremely diverse populations of school-kids, and tears it up at clubs and festivals.
