With an earthy vibe and calm demeanor, Kat Chabot brings a new quality to guitar-based folk in the 21st C. Her experimental tunings often serve the fundamental vibration of the instrument, while lyrics delve deeply into the essence of her Northern-Ontario mindset. Spending her youth working in a greenhouse, and growing up in a family band covering mostly RUSH and Journey songs; Kat feels most at home outside or onstage.

With her fingerstyle picking and smooth-as-silk vocal quality, audiences are mesmerized by each story Kat weaves. A typically noisy room often falls silent early in the set, as listeners tune into the magic of the performance. From showcasing at the Horseshoe Tavern performing with 3 uniquely tuned guitars, to recording live as a guest with Survivor Man Les Stroud’s band, and singing the Canadian anthem during the Vermont Expos Baseball game; her motivation and investment in mastering her craft is evident from the outset. You can catch Kat Chabot performing all over Ontario Farmer’s Markets, local festivals, bars and restaurants, either performing solo, or with Cardinal Street – a five-piece rock band.

Listen to Kat’s guest appearance on the Uncover the Music podcast to find out more.
