Ladles Community Tour (Spring 2016) Katharine Martucci
The Ladles is a contemporary folk ensemble comprised of Katharine Martucci (vocals, guitar, fiddle), Caroline Kuhn (tenor banjo, vocals) and Lucia Purpura-Pontoniere (fiddle, vocals). The Ladles is organizing a summer tour, bringing their music and educational programs to small venues and mindful musical communities across the country. Highlights include intimate performances at the Birdhouse Center for The Arts (NJ) and Pete’s Candy Store (Brooklyn, NY), a residency at Camp Celo (NC), and a square dance set for the Schroon Lake Town Dance (NY). Members of the ensemble will be documenting their experiences through an online blog, providing resources and reflections for other independent female musicians to utilize in building their audiences.
