New Traditions - March 31, 1998

Host: Richard H. Fox

In Studio Interview: Kate MacLeod - Web Site

Today's guest was Waterbug artist Kate MacLeod, a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Salt Lake City, Utah. Kate is able to meet the challenges of raising three children, working, and writing and performing music. While many might find this overwhelming, she has channeled her life into her music. Kate's study began with classical violin and as she branched into other genres, she added (at least) harmonica and guitar. Though she wrote songs as early as high school, she feels her songwriting really began while her children were very young "with the instruments in the playpens and the children everywhere else." Her compositions reflect her love of traditional folk songs, both in music and lyrical style. In studio, Kate performed with ease, relaxed and centered. Her voice has a purity and softness that adds impact to the stories she tells. Guitar and voice weave together with the harmonica to create a full sound. In between the live music, we were treated to Kate's recorded picks which ranged from influences to fellow violinists to current favorite performers and songwriters. On a sunny and unseasonably hot day (a year ago we had an impressive blizzard), Kate added a special warmth to start to our day here in MetroWorcester.
