Kathy Boyd

Kathy Boyd is a high-energy bluegrass dynamo, well known in the Northwestern United States and Canada.  Her popularity will no doubt increase as she spins her web throughout the bluegrass community.  Kathy is the co-host of Uptown Bluegrass, a syndicated show carried by a number of stations in Canada and the United States in a one or two-hour format.  The show has been broadcast for the pat 25 years.

Kathy shares hosting duties with George McKnight.  McKnight has been with the show since its inception, while Kathy has been on-board for the past five years. 

You can see a listing of the stations carrying the show, or listen to 24/7 streaming audio at www.uptownbluegrass.com.  A new show is uploaded every Thursday.

Uptown Bluegrass operates with a playlist that nixes traditional and contemporary bluegrass styles.  The show originates in Canada, so it has plenty of Canadian content mixed with musical input from the rest of the bluegrass world.  Each show is built around a different theme, and the content may lean more towards an old-timey sound on some broadcasts.

Syndication makes it difficult to get a handle on the show's demographics, but the website receives visits from over a thousand listeners a week.  Gotta love the Internet!

Another of the many facets of Boyd's musical life is her band, Kathy Boyd & Phoenix Rising.  Kathy plays bass for this four-piece bluegrass/Americana ensemble (visit their website at www.phoenixrisingband.org).  Kathy and her husband own a recording studio that specializes in acoustic recording and sound for small festivals; check it out at www.groundzerosound.com.

Kathy also works as a public speaker for the Alzheimer's Association, and as an Admissions Coordinator for Odyssey Hospice.  Artists and listeners may contact her at kathyboyd@phoenixrisingband.org.
