The exploration of coastal living, in all of its glory, splendor, isolation, and mystery, has inspired Kate to make a new concept album – coming soon! In the meantime please check out “Give it A Whirl” from Kate’s critically acclaimed album, The Coachman.
Singer-songwriter Kate Gaffney honed her skills in her native Philadelphia, jumped from coast to coast and toured everywhere in between. She laid musical roots in Northern California, building a loyal following in Sacramento and within the fertile San Francisco Bay Area music community. Gaffney has performed at High Sierra Music Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Hangtown Music Festival & Philadelphia Folk Festival, and has opened for a variety of touring acts including Todd Snider, Xavier Rudd, Chris Smither, Carolyn Wonderland, Jackie Greene, Karl Denson, Kaki King, Richie Havens, Elephant Revival, and Dead Winter Carpenters. Gaffney has released three albums: Highways, The New Then, The Coachman. A new concept album, a collaboration with long-time Philadelphia friends Andrew Lipke & Chris Kasper, is planned for release later this year.
