Mid-Week Session - Katie Mullins

A former opera singer and actress, Katie Mullins released her debut album Pastoral in 2009, establishing herself as a singer/songwriter who moves beyond the typical ‘girl with guitar’ mold.

On Wedding, her second album, released in 2013, she sings with the same rich voice and uses unexpected instruments like the mbira, a thumb-piano in the Zimbabwean tuning that she made herself, in addition to a baritone ukulele and keyboards.
