Kat Wallace and David Sasso play Best Video Film & Cultural Center Fri., July 1. The show starts at 7 PM and the cover is $10.

Kat Wallace and David Sasso met playing hard and fast bluegrass with New Haven string band Five ‘n Change (formerly Five in the Chamber). Their shared background in classical music and affinity for all things trad brought them together to form an intimate and virtuosic duo.

With fiddle and a variety of mandolin-family instruments, Wallace and Sasso orbit around traditional folk, original songwriting, and the ever-evolving boundaries of Americana music. Their effortless vocal lines and innovative harmonies command the stage while allowing space for each song to tell its story.

They’ll be joined in rare quartet formation with Steven Manwaring and Ariel Bernstein.

Their debut album, Stuff of Stars, released in 2019 to critical acclaim, paved the way for their highly anticipated sophomore album, Old Habits, released on October 1, 2021. Both projects were recorded, mixed, and mastered by Dan Cardinal at Dimension Sound Studios in Boston.

This is an inside show so proof of vaccination and masks are required.
