Few are more conscious in their journey through Appalachian histories and the Canadian musical landscape than Kaia Kater. Born in Montreal, Kater has lived Winnipeg, Wakefield and, most recently, West Virginia – she now resides in Toronto. Her old-time banjo-picking skills, deft arrangements, and songwriting abilities have landed her in the spotlight in North America and the UK, garnering critical acclaim from outlets such as Rolling Stone, CBC Music and The Roots Music Report. Often praised for her capacity to sound ‘new’ and ‘old’ at the same time, Kaia anchors her music the space where tradition and innovation intersect.
Her latest record is NINE PIN.
