Peghead Nation’s Clawhammer Banjo teacher Evie Ladin grew up surrounded by traditional Appalachian and other folk music and dance, but her recordings have primarily reflected her songwriting and expansive string band sound. Performing and teaching often within the traditional milieu, she spent the past year recording fiddle-and-banjo duet tracks with 17 old-time fiddlers across the country, and the result is her new album Riding the Rooster. In this video, she plays Ward Jarvis’ “Icy Mountain” with one of those fiddlers, Emily Mann, of Berkeley, California. Emily is a member of the Crooked Jades and half of the duo Paper Wings, which will be touring Northern California in the spring of 2019 with the Evie Ladin Band for a dual CD release show. After producing this traditional CD Evie will be taking her band into the studio this winter to work on new songs. www.evieladin.com
