KARINE POLWART TRIO | NEW YORK CITY

CARNEGIE HALL, 7th Ave, New York

Karine Polwart & Kaia Kater 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 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.
