Kat Eggleston's incomparable music has dazzled audiences around the world, from intimate clubs to concert halls and festivals. Her original songs have won worldwide acclaim for their lyrical and emotional truth, while her powerful yet gently beautiful voice showcases material ranging from contemporary songs to the traditions of Great Britain and America with equal grace.
Kat's passionate, sometimes humorous lyrics create images of great conflict with arresting realism. She is a startlingly strong fingerstyle guitarist, often intertwining her songs with Celtic dance tunes arranged for the guitar. Her approach to the hammered dulcimer is renowned for its use of space and harmonic texture, as well as its seemingly effortless fluidity and power.
Kat presents her music with humor and an honest, joyful presence that can't help but leave each listener touched. Spontaneity is the hallmark of Kat's performance, but listeners can always count on an evening to remember, one that will leave them deeply moved, smiling, perhaps even changed forever.
