Listening to Kat Danser is like travelling with your ears. Her music draws a direct line from the Canadian Prairies to the Mississippi Delta. This Edmonton-based guitarist, songwriter and vocalist has been dubbed “The Queen of The Swamp Blues”. Her style is steeped in tradition yet distills a refreshing approach to roots, blues, and gospel music for the 21st Century. Danser offers a new take on centuries-old premises and is adept at taking jabs at modern-day cultural phenomena.

Danser’s third album, Passin’-A-Time, takes us with her from the wheat fields of Saskatchewan to the cotton fields of Mississippi. She has a deep passion, understanding and respect for Delta blues, one of the earliest forms of North American popular music, and draws heavily on the rich and fertile musical climate there. This new album is a testament to those cultural encounters. Rich in tradition yet modernistic in tone, Passin’-A-Time chronicles her unique musical journey along the rivers and rails of this continent.

Kat will be backed up by Steve Dawson's band.

From the Opera House in Sydney, to the Open House in Jerusalem, SONiA (Rutstein aka disappear fear) writes and performs captivating love songs and confronts the hypocrisies and biases of our culture with a positive message of openness and optimism. Singing in Hebrew, Spanish, Arabic and English, her powerful honesty touches people of varied social and ethnic backgrounds, especially those moving towards a positive world vision.

"Her songs are a vivid celebration of the human spirit in all its infinite manifestations...Disappear Fear's music has a singular sound all its own that makes labeling and categorizing a waste of time....Seed in the Sahara deserves widespread exposure for a true audience that has both a heart and a brain and aren't afraid of music that touches both." -Don Kening, Daily Herald, Chicago
