Evie Ladin Band Concert – OTTER OPRY
September 4 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
After being dark for waaaaaayyyyyyy too long thanks to the pandemic, Otter Opry is thrilled to bring foot-stompin’, down-home bluegrass and old-time music back to Monterey on Saturday, September 4th with the amazing Evie Ladin Band. Tenacious, innovative string musicians, the Evie Ladin Band – Evie Ladin, Keith Terry and Erik Pearson – throws down captivating, truly entertaining live shows. Grounded in Appalachian old-time repertoire, seasoned in African-diaspora roots, writing from life in modern cities, blurring the lines between music and dance, the polyrhythmic heat of Evie’s clawhammer banjo, resonant voice, real stories and rhythmic dance have been heard from A Prairie Home Companion to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. Their performance experience is a stand-out. Come on down to the United Methodist Church and treat yourself to Evie’s mastery of the clawhammer banjo and what WOMAD Festival calls “the soulful, salty tanginess of her voice” that grips the listener and refuses to let go. You don’t want to miss this one! The event includes a public jam starting at 4:00pm and an outside dinner at 5:30pm ($10 in advance, $15 at the door).
$20/show (18 and under free); $10-15/pre-show Dinner
