Kate is a versatile songwriter, fiddler, guitarist, vocalist, record producer and session musician, who has made a name for herself over the past several years.

Kate followed this in 2002 with "Drawn from the Well," a duet recording with Kat Eggleston. Some who know of her as a singer and songwriter may not be aware of Kate's talent as a celtic-style fiddler. She began studying violin at age seven near Washington, D.
