a little about Kate…

Kate Burkart has been writing, singing, and playing in the San Francisco Bay area for over a decade. She released “Faith To Fall”, her debut album, in 2010. The six-song EP “Save Me a Seat” followed in 2015, and she’s released several singles since, including “Last”, the Blaze Foley cover “Moonlight”, and a song about the pandemic – “Twisted Wind“.

The Kate Burkart Band is a true Americana blend of rock, twang, and some quiet introspection. The common thread? Lyrics that tell a story and draw the listener in. Her voice and songs are most often compared with those of Lucinda Williams, Neil Young, and Emmylou Harris. Everyone’s having a good time when this band is playing…especially the band.

The Kate Burkart Band:

Kate Burkart / lead vocal, bass
John Harris / lead guitar
Nancy Lake / guitar, vocals
Steve Pearson / drums, vocals


next show is Sunday 10/1/23 – Slow Hand BBQ in Martinez, 1-4pm outside!


There’s a mystic place I go to when music moves me. It’s a dreamlike condition where everything is certain. ‘Save me A Seat’ from Kate Burkart takes me there. It’s a collection of six songs reflecting on the spaces and links between people, their changing experiences and the persistence of memory – and it’s superb.
