Kate Griffin is a clawhammer banjo player, singer and composer emerging on the UK folk and world scene. Described as “one of the top banjo players in the country” by virtuoso Dan Walsh, her innovative banjo style combines both traditional UK and American folk, whilst also placing the banjo in a contemporary setting. In 2018 Kate formed award winning global folk collective MISHRA, alongside musical partner Ford Collier, with their debut album released autumn 2019. As of 2021 she also performs as part of critically acclaimed transatlantic neo-folk band THE MAGPIES. Kate is a fellow of international music exchange programme MAKING TRACKS 2020 with plans for future international collaboration, recently receiving a grant from EFDSS to explore collaboration with a Mozambique artist.
