Bill Evans "Banjo in America", and Evie Ladin Band
The San Francisco Bluegrass & Old Time Festival presents Bill Evans "Banjo in America", and Evie Ladin & Evil Diane.

Tracing the banjo from its West African roots to the New World, Bill Evans performs musical examples from the 1700's to the present day on a variety of vintage instruments, ranging from an African ekonting to a mid-19th century minstrel banjo, a modern bluegrass banjo and even an electric banjo. From an 18th century African dance tune to the music of the Civil War, and from early 20th century ragtime to folk and bluegrass banjo styles to Bill's own incredible original music, Bill's performances illuminate as well as entertain, exposing audiences to over 200 years of American music.

The Evie Ladin Band is Evie Ladin, Keith Terry, and Erik Pearson. The polyrhythmic funk of Evie Ladin's clawhammer banjo, resonant voice, real stories and rhythmic dance, have been heard from A Prairie Home Companion to Celtic Connections,Lincoln Center to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Known as a driving force behind San Francisco's Stairwell Sisters, Evie's solo debut Float Downstream (2010) was reviewed by Sing Out! magazine as "Solid song craft performed wonderfully end to end...Very strongly recommended." Keith Terry (bass, Body Music, vocals) is a renowned percussionist/rhythm dancer, and the founder of the International Body Music Festival.Erik Pearson (guitar, banjo, vocals) is a musician's musician with the Crooked Jades, storyteller Diane Ferlatte, and his solo projects.
