For all the rebel-rousers and alt-country outlaws, heart on your sleeve storytellers and survivors – this one’s for you. Kate Redgate’s music is a mixture of rock and roll, folk, roots-rock and country. The result of a high school dropout using time well spent absorbing her early influences: the ones she heard as a kid on the loudspeakers at the Illinois Boots and Saddle Club, the ones she saved money and hitched rides to buy recordings of at the local record store, and the ones she waited to hear on the radio, cassette recorder button ready, so she could rewind and playback songs over and over learning chords and writing down lyrics. The Stones and the Grateful Dead, X and the Replacements, Pretenders and Joni Mitchell, Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris…You get the drift.
Join us in celebrating the release of her long-awaited recording Light Under The Door – out on Rum Bar Records on June 2 – with this full band special show!
