Kat first fell in love with old time music during a trip through the southern and eastern states of America ten years ago. Since this fateful trip, she has been accumulating old time fiddle tunes and writing originals in the style of the old ballads. She is joined by Maggie Rigby and Paddy Montgomery in her current band. They play a mix of traditional old time tunes, original tunes and songs, as well as traditional mountain ballads.
