(An) arrestingly fun show...every song, dance solo, and mid-number banjo breakdown was followed by vigorous clapping and hollers. -- SMILE POLITELY

You don't often hear words like "traditional," and "authentic" paired with "innovative" and "unique," but Evie Ladin has brought them together brilliantly in the self-titled, debut album of the Evie Ladin Band, and the result is truly a high point in new old-time music.

Evie Ladin Band It worked!! Taking a sabbatical from gigging and teaching, focusing on practicing and writing...catapulted me from creative silence to overflowing with new material and ideas. Now if only I had another couple of months on this path, but no - here we go right into a host of concerts, workshops, tours. I love what I do, but creative rejuvenation was long overdue. At least I know now... I still got it :) Want to hear the new songs? Come on out to a show this month, or on our upcoming tours in WA, OR, IL, MO, TN, GA, NC, KY, IN, MI!!



ELB WON the Fan Vote for AMERICANA ALBUM OF THE YEAR by the Independent Music Awards!

Ladin's voice is a revelation. Clear, strong, delicate and emotive all at the same time...her exemplary examples of adult love songs deal with complicated subject matter, yet never lose their swing or get bogged down by maudlin sentimentality. In fact, the music is gorgeous.
--No Depression

This compelling record and her amazing band lineup should finally earn Evie Ladin the reputation she deserves in the folk music world...she has outdone herself this time. --Fiddlefreak

Deliciously quirky...imagine a mash-up of Michelle Shocked and Emmy Lou Harris! --New Times

Her rich and smoky voice resembles Natalie Merchant's, and her songs are as fetching as Nancy Griffith's...they're all catchy, with mature lyrics and skilled phrasing.
