Kate MacLeod is an unpretentious songwriter whose lyric style is subtle, spare and sometimes chilling, delivering her music with strong vocals, guitar, and exquisite fiddle playing. Some of her songs are based on historic events and are written in a folk ballad style that demonstrates her long experience with traditional music. Others of her songs could easily be covered by mainstream artists. Kate's lyrics have invited comparisons to John Steinbeck and Woody Guthrie, and her singing has been compared to Nanci Griffith and Emmylou Harris. Kate cites Jean Ritchie, Norman Blake, Peter Rowan, Mary McCaslin, and Paul Simon among her influences; but Kate is very much an original. MusicHound Folk's essential album guide chose Kate as one of 1998's "ten acts to watch." We think you will agree!
"A brilliant songwriter and performer who demonstrates an unbreakable link between the depth of tradition and the cutting edge."
Now Available from Wind River Records:
