The Kate on PBS

Kandace Springs performs at The Kate on PBS

  • Live music lovers, check out The Kate, streaming on PBS.org. It's a series featuring bold performers with something to say. Selected under a hypothetical litmus test that asks “would Katharine Hepburn have found them audacious enough to invite them for a cocktail?”, The Kate presents artists with true cred who take to the stage with personal stories, hilarious moments, honest and creative expressions of art, and of course, impossibly good music. A recent episode features Kandace Springs who, with her all-female band, performs songs from her 2020 album "The Women Who Raised Me." WATCH KANDACE HERE!

Rosanne Cash on The Kate

  • Rosanne Cash has moved through phases in her life — daughter of country music royalty; young poet; Grammy-winning country star — to her current position as one of the country’s preeminent singer-songwriters. On The Kate, a national public television performance series produced by Connecticut Public Television, Cash is accompanied by her producer/partner/husband, the much-respected guitar player John Leventhal. With words as her paints and her voice as the brush, Cash delivers a sonic portrait of the American South and “characters” from the Cash family as she performs songs from her and John’s album, The River and the Thread. WATCH ROSANNE HERE.
