Kare Ellis (Trio) Live In Kent
Saturday, March 3rd, 2018
7:30 PM
We're proud to present Kate Ellis, an Americana singer/songwriter born in Louisiana, raised in New York and now based in London.

Playing in festivals and concerts, from NY to London to Paris, Kate's timeless music reflects a love of classic singer/songwriters, from Gram Parsons and Gillian Welch, to Mary Chapin Carpenter, Leonard Cohen and Nanci Griffith.

Kate’s southern country-folk roots come from her father who was an important early musical influence – he once played guitar with Hank Williams on the famous Louisiana Hayride, where Elvis and Johnny Cash started out.

Kate’s emotional and seductive vocals take you into a world of private beauty, reflection and feelings. The music is always intimate and evocative – you listen and want to be there.

“I think there can be something incredibly beautiful about being connected to a strong emotion even if it's a really sad one - often especially if it's a really sad one,” Kate says.

“I hope that whatever people get from the music, they’ll be moved. I hope that they’ll find something that is beautiful and truthful. I don’t think that you can connect with any real emotion without truth.”

Kate will be supported on the night by The Swindells Sisters. Emma Swindells, winner of the Breakthrough Act prize at the British Country Music Association Awards 2017, will play alongside sister, Clare.
