Kath Bloom Concert

Sunday, October 8 › 2-3 p.m.

Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

A legend of folk, country, blues and avant-garde music, Kath Bloom has been making records since the mid '70s when she teamed up with avant-blues guitarist Loren Mazzacane Connors to release traditional blues and folk albums that are still popular today. After a hiatus, Kath returned to songwriting and recording in the early '90s, revealing a songwriter as accomplished as any of her acclaimed colleagues such as Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch or Hazel Dickens. Her music has been featured in films such as Richard Linklater’s "Before Sunrise," and her songs have been covered by younger songwriters including Bill Callahan, Devendra Banhart, Meg Baird, Scout Niblet and many more. At this performance, Kath will be joined by celebrated Nashville-based musician Peggy Snow of the Cherry Blossoms and renowned upright bassist Evan Lipson. Co-sponsored with the Dismal Niche Music and Arts Festival. For more information on the festival visit www.dismalniche.com.
