The Katies

The Katies are a genre-spanning folk duo comprising Katie Stevens (of The Bonfire Radicals) and Katy Rose Bennett (songwriter and 1/3 of The Bennett Family Singers). Both are skilled multi-instrumentalists and singers and present a veritable smorgasbord of musical delights: from Traditional Irish, Klezmer, Bulgarian and British folk music to American jazz standards, alt-country and original songs.

Unsurprisingly, their collective influences are many and varied from Matt Molloy, Gillian Welch, Ivo Papasov, George Gershwin and Joni Mitchell.

With Katie on clarinet, whistles and flutes and Katy on guitars and keyboard, their music can move from intimate, delicate 2-part vocal harmony, to fiery, fast and raucous dance tunes in a matter of seconds.
