Karine Polwart by Paul Heartfield, Kaia Kater by Raez Argulla
This special double bill looks back to Scottish and Canadian roots while creating a progressive and thrilling new brand of music. Karine Polwart is a multi-award–winning Scottish songwriter, spoken-word performer, and essayist. She performs traditional music, as well as her own strikingly original, deeply personal, and socially penetrating songs. Kaia Kater was born of African Caribbean descent in Quebec. Her marvelously original music is influenced by the Canadian folk music of her parents and the years she studied and performed Appalachian music in West Virginia.

Part of: Migrations: The Making of America, Non-Subscription Events, Scots-Irish and Irish Migration, American Byways, Scots-Irish and Irish Migration, and Migrations
