Katherine Rondeau’s soaring alto glides through the modern folk genre–from murder ballad to roof-raising singalong! “She possesses an amazing set of pipes and knows how to use them.” Rich Warren, WFMT
Katherine Rondeau is a full-throttle singer-songwriter who focuses her passion for classic folk music through a thoroughly modern lens. After bursting onto the Philadelphia folk scene in 2015, she was quickly recognized for her rich, bold voice and warm, engaging performance style.
And what a voice it is! Iconic Folk DJ Rich Warren of WFMT’s Midnight Special program may have said it best: “She possesses an amazing set of pipes and knows how to use them.” Katherine’s soaring alto moves effortlessly through all facets of the folk genre – the haunting cry of an Appalachian-inspired murder ballad, a powerful, passionate call for social justice, a honey-warmed love song, and a roof-raising singalong that inspires the whole audience to “join the choir!”
Her January 2019 release Unfortunate Point of View debuted at #4 with the #1 original song, and is one of only two albums charting for ten straight months on the Folk Alliance Folk DJ charts (sharing the distinction with Smithsonian Folkways artists Lula Wiles).
Folk DJs across the country listed Katherine's self-produced album on their weekly top ten lists, and the accolades don’t stop there. “The tremendous success of Rondeau’s 2019 album allowed new fans across North America to hear the power of her big, unmistakable voice and explore the depth of her lyrics exploring topics ranging from love to social justice. Be sure to catch her now." Art Menius, WCOM, Carrboro, NC.
She’ll be serving up her roots-inspired sound with Black Mountain, NC bound guitarist Paul Wilkinson of the bluegrass/jam band Mason Porter.
