Put yourself in the heart of hardscrabble hills Appalachia –hear that strong, lyrical wail calling down from the mountain, and the steel ring of the banjo strings? Or a picking porch overlooking a tree-lined creek – hear the upright bass thump and warm, soulful tones of a woman lost in song? That's the unforgettable sound of Katherine Rondeau and the Show.
Featuring Katherine Rondeau, Donna Bostock, and Smilin’ Ed, the band is making waves at venues across the East Coast including Godfrey Daniels, Philadelphia Folksong Society, Folk Project, Burlap and Bean, and MusikFest.
In command on any stage, Katherine’s powerful vocals and driving guitar are partnered with two kindred musical spirits in this tightly wound, tightly bound trio. Donna is an international performer/musician, music arranger/composer and music educator as smoking hot on bass as she is with a cajon, and Ed is a trad music picking wizard whose work on the banjo and mando take you up to the mountaintop and down by the riverside in one turn!
Katherine’s 10/16 release New Hope Chateau received kudos from folk DJs and journalists, with a #9 song and #20 album. Watch for new music coming from this power folk in your town!
