The American Roots Recap series featuring Adam Schlenker & Hayes Griffin continues with special guest Evie Ladin. Banjo player, singer, songwriter, percussive-dancer, choreographer and square-dance caller, Evie has always been surrounded by music – credit to her upbringing as daughter of an international folk dance teacher, and an old-time folk music devotee. Evie’s performances, recordings and teaching reconnect Appalachian music/dance with other African-Diaspora traditions, and have been heard from A Prairie Home Companion to Lincoln Center, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass to Celtic Connections. Evie tours internationally with Keith Terry and her Evie Ladin Band; and has produced numerous albums and instructional DVDs.
Hayes Griffin is a multi-instrumentalist and music educator who has over a decade’s worth of experience touring with acts like Canadian fiddler April Verch and progressive bluegrass band Newtown, whose album Harlan Road featured Griffin’s guitar work and debuted at #8 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts. Released in 2020, “Midwestern Swing” is Griffin’s solo debut and delivers an aural cocktail inspired by the sounds of American country and swing music from the 1930’s, 40s, and 50s.
Adam Schlenker is an educator, performer, composer and arranger of Acoustic American Roots Music, and founded 5th Fret Productions, combining online, video-based lessons with one-on-one instruction. He has been featured in and contributed to Flat Picking Guitar Magazine and is the Coordinator of American Roots & Bluegrass Music Studies at Denison University. Adam strives to develop music that reflects his influences while attempting to keep the music moving forward. This approach to making music, innovation through tradition, continues with his latest album, The Ghosts of Pain Creek.
