Description:
Alexander Black House & Cultural Center concludes the Sunset Rhythms concert series with Kat Mills on Friday, August 26, 2022.

Join us on the lawn of the Alexander House for Sunset Rhythms our summer music series. Feel free to bring snacks or a picnic and come enjoy listening to each talented artist.

Kat Mills performs soul folk music to soothe you and is based in Blacksburg, VA and tours throughout the East. She is a writer, singer, guitarist and seeker rooted in GenX habits, nodding and winking to 60s and 70s troubadour traditions, and openly commenting on the aches and triumphs of the moment. Any way you hear it, Kat's powerful vocal range, vintage Martin guitar, and mystic vibes combine to produce a clean honest sound that leaves audiences wanting more.

Kat Mills believes in the power of folk music, now more than ever, to transport and transcend. A troubled day, or world, can be soothed by a song. At a time when we have almost forgotten how to be still, to listen, to reflect and then engage, Kat Mills helps us remember.

She was a founding member of acclaimed newgrass band, Grass. Kat is currently based in Blacksburg VA and touring as a solo singer and songwriter throughout the East and beyond. Kat has been inspiring all with her music, her smoky voice and heartfelt lyrics for years.

Her vintage guitars and throwback threads remind you of another era, but her soulful original songs and stories are for the here and now. Kat Mills has made records, won awards, and worked with some of the big names, but she really just wants to use her voice for good.

Kat has proudly been involved in Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival (NY), Floyd Fest (VA), Solar Fest (VT), The Takoma Park Folk Festival (DC) and other events lining up with issues of social justice and environmental responsibility. Favorite opening sets have supported Levon Helm, Dar Williams, Dori Freeman and Sarah Lee Guthrie.

Songwriter series, in-the-rounds, and house concerts have been a mainstay. But Kat Mills is equally at home on a theater or café stage, having played notable songwriter venues including The Towne Crier, Rosendale Café, The Lyric Theatre, Caffe Lena, Jefferson Center, and Kirk Avenue Music Hall. She was a finalist in the 2015 NewSong/LEAF Singer-Songwriter Competition, has had original song placements in film and podcasts, and appears as a backing vocalist for other artists, most recently with super-group “Reelin’ in the Years: A Tribute to Steely Dan” at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock NY.
