Kittery,Maine- On Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 7:30 p.m., The Dance Hall in Kittery presents a concert with  Evie Ladin & Keith Terry. Innovative musicians/dancers with a quirky neo-trad soul, Oakland, California-based Evie Ladin & Keith Terry throw down original folk songs and deep interpretations of old songs, with the kinetic thrill of percussive dance. Ladin sings and plays infectious clawhammer banjo, while Terry is a master percussionist. 
"It was Appalachian string band music pared to the absolute minimum of accompaniment, but packed with an orchestras worth of rhythm."  Music City Roots, Nashville

A prolific singer-songwriter, percussive dancer and square dance caller, the polyrhythmic heat of Evie's clawhammer banjo has been heard from A Prairie Home Companion to Celtic Connections, Lincoln Center to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. 

"She can write, she can sing, and she pulls back from the saccharine brink with wit  a sharp intelligence."  Grant Alden, No Depression

Trained as a jazz drummer, Keith Terry brings tonal percussion to stand-up bass, is a renowned percussionist/rhythm dancer, the founder of the International Body Music Festival, and a collaborator with a host of inventive performers from Bobby McFerrin, Tex Williams and Robin Williams, to Turtle Island Quartet, Charles Honi Coles and Bill Irwin. 

"Mr. Terry in action is like visiting an anatomical carnival, where hands, feet, fingers, engage in a musical ballet."  Wall Street Journal

Evie & Keith perform for all ages, and are skilled educators, often offering workshops and in-school activities while touring, from elementary through professional level training on a host of topics. This Spring they celebrate the release of the CD Caught On A Wire with the Evie Ladin Band, their fourth album with this tight trio. They are excited to return to The Dance Hall after the East Coast premier of the theatrical, international collaboration, BODY MUSIC see music/hear dance, that they presented in May, 2018.
Tickets are available at Doors open at 7:00 p.m.
