Kati Penn and Newtown

 
     
Newtown features five artists demonstrating a vast array of acoustic music styling. Based out of Lexington, Kentucky, Newtown accurately cites their obvious local musical influences. The band is able to journey into a realm of their own while still maintaining the spirit of the legendary bluegrass and “Newgrass” sounds created within the walls of Lexington’s Red Slipper Lounge during the mid 70’s.

The band was started by Kati Penn, a talented fiddle player and vocalist from Frankfort, Kentucky. Kati is unique in her ability to maintain the philosophy of a band of equal parts. Jr Williams complements his wife, Kati, with amazing high harmony and lead vocals along with persistently tasteful banjo and guitar playing.

James Kee, of Chattanooga, Tennessee is featured on the mandolin, lead, and harmony vocals. James sings nearly any part thrown his direction and is also very accomplished on the guitar and banjo as well. On guitar is C.J. Cain, a Lexington native and graduate of the University of Kentucky. C.J.’s guitar style exemplifies an eclectic musical background and desire to reach outside the box.

Terry Poirier is the band’s newest member, recently relocated to Lexington from New Brunswick, Canada. Terry has become the backbone of the band’s groove and is exceptionally gifted in the art of music and recording.

Together, the band blends their vastly different musical influences to deliver a sound of their own. Kati Penn and Newtown create their sound as a cohesive musical unit with a tangible diversity to which all listeners can relate..

Newtown is a band that is on the cutting edge of what bluegrass has to offer today. Though steeped in tradition and able to give a confident nod to the music of yesterday, Newtown is a band of young, talented, and creative musicians and singers able to transcend what is expected to be the "norm" for Bluegrass bands. Instead, they unveil a fresh new sound that shows what is possible for the bluegrass music of tomorrow.
