The Twin Cities’ sweetheart of Bluegrass, Americana and Folk is Katey Bellville. Quiet and unassuming, Katey has been singing all her life and has received high marks from some of the huge artists of our day. But you wouldn’t know it when you meet her. Not until you hear her simple honest sweet songs. -JazzyJ, Owner, Twin Cities Radio
With a nostalgic appreciation for old time tunes, Katey Bellville inevitably pines for traditional sounds while composing contemporary songs. Raised both in the rolling hills of the country on horseback and deep in the heart of the city of Minneapolis – she has always stirred a brew of reverse passions. Dedicated listeners describe her original songs as ‘unforgettable’, blending modern pop sensibilities with fundamental bluegrass instrumentation.
Katey Bellville has shared the stage with Alison Krauss at the Ryman Auditorium, yodeled atop Haleakala in Maui at 10,000 feet, performed on live international radio, toured Hutterite communities through Montana, and the list goes on. Returning to the festival scene after a baby (2) raising hiatus, she sings because ‘she needs to’. Like water, like air… music.
