Kaia Kater

Appalachian Festival Capstone Concert

Kaia Kater with Special Guests Anna & Elizabeth

SATURDAY, SEPT. 15 | 7:30 PM
Frostburg Palace Theatre, 31 E. Main Street, Frostburg

Born of African-Caribbean descent in Québec, Kater’s old-time banjo skills, jazz-fueled voice and deft songcraft have garnered acclaim from BBC Music, No Depression and Rolling Stone, who named her one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.” Her innovative style reveals that she has as much in common with Kendrick Lamar as with Pete Seeger.

Anna & Elizabeth

Appalachian folk musicians Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle combine soul-stirring harmonies, storytelling and the use of a traditional “crankie” – illustrated, hand-cranked scrolls – to bring old-time music and ballads to a new generation of music lovers.
