Hailing from the rich musical history of the Catskill Mountains in New York State, Katie Martucci grew up singing and playing fiddle and guitar. The daughter of a jazz pianist, she began performing with her father at a young age. By the first grade, she was writing her own songs and playing for tips. Her musical journeys led her to the Ashokan Western and Swing Week Fiddle & Dance Camp, vocal lessons with Laurel Masse of Manhattan Transfer, a brief stint of collegiate a cappella at Skidmore College and ultimately, to the New England Conservatory. While at NEC, Katie studied voice, violin and songwriting in the Contemporary Improvisation Department, and had the opportunity to work with Dominique Eade, Ran Blake, Hankus Netsky, Carla Kihlstedt, and Eden MacAdam-Somer. Since graduating in May of 2016, Katie has been on the move. She currently pays rent in New Orleans, but you’re more likely to find her out on the road – playing with Brooklyn-based band Goldfeather, sitting in with John Kirk & Trish Miller of Quickstep, or touring together with Lucia Purpura-Pontoniere and Caroline Kuhn as The Ladles.
