This Is The Kit and Dominie Hooper
If you thought you didn’t like the banjo, This Is The Kit – the alias singer, songwriter and banjo enthusiast Kate Stables – may very likely prove you wrong. She started playing and collaborating with local musicians in Bristol. Now based in Paris, This Is The Kit has built up a loyal and growing following appreciative of its alt-folk sound with hypnotic and characteristic twang patterns, candid storytelling and the rare, unaffected beauty of Stables’ voice.
Centred around the idea of change Careful Of Your Keepers – This Is The Kit’s fourth album –epitomises Stables’ trait of constantly reinventing her music, challenging perceptions and conventions.
