Chicago Psych Fest & Daze Off Present Astral Autumn Daze:
Kath Bloom
Kath Bloom is some kind of legend. She comes from a special place where country, blues and folk are made beautifully translucent and emotive. Highly regarded but a bit of a mystery. The Connecticut based singer/songwriter has a special gift – her almost supernaturally beautiful, wavering soprano is one that has to be heard, she has a clear transparent moonlight tone combined with an earthly raw quality that can silence a room.

Kath made some very very limited edition albums in the 70’s and 80’s with the amazing (and equally dreamlike) guitarist Loren Mazzacane Connors, full of songs that float and melt into the ether. Impossibly beautiful. However, music was put on the back burner as life changed and she raised a family, trained ‘problem horses’ and taught special music programs to kids. Just as she was starting to write and release CDs again, Richard Linklater decided to use her song ‘Come
Here’ in his 1995 film ‘Before Sunrise’. Life altered – not much – but the public consciousness was rightfully tweaked. Slowly her old recordings and new material have been seeping back into the world. This includes a special tribute album by artists such as Josephine Foster, Bill Callahan, Devendra Banhart, Meg Baird and Scout Nibblet. Since 2017 she has been recording and performing with New Haven, CT based guitarist David Shapiro

Charlie Schmidt plays John Fahey
Steel-string guitarist Charlie Schmidt was not only a contemporary of the American finger style master, but he so perfectly emulated his mentor that a batch of Schmidt’s early recordings were once mistaken for the work of Fahey by his record label, critics, and collectors.
