Canadian folk singer Kaia Kater recently released her very solid third album Grenades via Smithsonian Folkways. It recalls a handful of time-tested folk music sounds, but it's also very personal.

She'll continue to support it on tour in 2019, which includes a Smithsonian APAP showcase at NYC's Rockwood Music Hall on 1/6 and a double bill with Scottish songwriter Karine Polwart at NYC's Carnegie Hall on 3/23. All dates and tickets here.
