Evie Ladin’s love of Appalachian music, dance, and songwriting all come together in the Evie Ladin Band’s third album, Jump the Fire, which has just been released. She stopped by the Peghead Nation studio recently with her bandmates Keith Terry and Erik Pearson to play a few songs from the album, including the title track, “Jump the Fire.”
The song is a celebration of all-night summer festival jams, and it features Keith’s body percussion and dancing.
You can catch Evie and the band on a West Coast album release tour in May, including a special hometown album release party at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, CA on May 19 with the great acoustic trio the Stray Birds. They’ll also embark on an East Coast album release tour in June with the Stray Birds.
