Kate In The Kettle's site
Touches of Eliza Carthy, Jorane, Iva Bittová
Own and traditional materials
Kate In The Kettle takes traditional and her own neo-traditional material and sets them in melodic yet edgy soundscapes. Edgy and yet highly listenable, oddball and individual and gorgeous. Jim says it's Eliza Carthy mixed with Jorane, and I say with maybe a touch of Iva Bittová. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Swimmings of the Head is her debut
Swimmings of the Head (2014)
Highly recommended for fans of the unusual
Kate Young—fiddle, vocals, ankle bells, singing bowls
One of the best albums of 2014. A highly individual mix of traditional and experiment materials and immediately catchy, powerful and gorgeous. I loved this album and find it enthralling. (Neile)
