Originally from Chicago, Baiman moved to Nashville at eighteen, and has spent the last decade working as a musician in a wide variety of roles, from session musician (Molly Tuttle, Kelsey Waldon, Caroline Spence), to live sidewoman (Kacey Musgraves, Amy Ray), to bandmate and producer.
Fiddle music was her first love, and she is known in the bluegrass and old time world for her work with progressive acoustic duo 10 String Symphony with fiddle player Christian Sedelmyer. Her first solo album Shame, was produced by Andrew Marlin of Mandolin Orange, and established her role as part of a new generation of political songwriters.
Since 2017, Baiman has toured her solo project internationally with appearances at the Kilkenny Roots Festival in Ireland, the Mullum Music Festival in Australia, and the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington, DC.
For the opening show of her 2022 UK tour, Baiman will be performing in a trio alongside guitarist/singer Anthony Da Costa (who previously played at Mareel with Sarah Jarosz) and bassist/singer Zoe Guigeno.
Islanders who have enjoyed previous Ragged Wood-promoted shows by artists including Jarosz, The Stray Birds, Front Country and Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards are sure to find much to love in Baiman’s harmonic blend of American roots music.
Also returning to the stage after a Covid-enforced lay-off will be Shetland’s own Americana specialists Kansa.
