Show Post: In House #1477

Salt Lake City singer-songwriter Kate MacLeod has been a staple of that city's folk scene for years. Following a move from the east coast in 1979 to study in Salt Lake City at the Violin Making School of America, MacLeod made her roots in Utah, playing with a variety of Celtic, folk, bluegrass and oldtime stringband acts. Since then, she's appeared on a number of recordings, both as a solo artist and as a member of larger ensembles within which her genre-hopping fiddle skills have been a central element. Earlier this year, she released her first album with her current band, Kate MacLeod & the Pancakes, entitled Breakfast. The album manages to find a niche in that place where traditional Celtic music meets northern Americana, or what was eventually to become bluegrass. The quartet shines on a variety of originals and traditionals, as well as one Bob Dylan cover. Kate MacLeod joins us today for a live in-studio set in support of her band's appearance tonight at the Acoustic Cafe (208-232-9755) in Pocatello, ID.
