Kaia Kater “Rising Down” [Live]

So beautiful.

Of Afro-Caribbean descent in Québec, Kater is a banjo player who plays a combination of old-time tunes and socially conscious originals. She studied Appalachian music and dance at West Virginia’s Davis and Elkins College. Her understanding of history and ethnomusicology shines on the traditional shape-note song “White.” We also love her first protest song, “Rising Down,” inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.
