Ilana Katz Katz, the busking blues violinist known for her ‘Subway Friday’ sessions every Friday at Park Street, is back in the studio recording the follow up to her debut album “I’ve Got Something to Tell You”.
She recently traveled to Lafayette, LA to do some recording in the home studio of Cedric Watson, a two-time Grammy nominee best known for contributions to Creole music. She will soon be recording a bit more in New York City, and further information about a release date for her album will be posted when it becomes available. Watson is not the first big name in the blues community with whom Katz Katz has worked ; Ronnie Earl, widely considered to be the greatest living blues guitarist, contributed guitar to her first full-length album.
Katz Katz will be playing a solo show at the legendary Harvard Square venue Club Passim on May 11. Watson will be traveling from Louisiana to join her for the evening and they will be performing new material from Katz Katz’s album. It is certainly a can’t miss show for any blues lovers in Boston. Tickets are available here.
