Katherine Rondeau is a bold voice in the folk world and Unfortunate Point of View showcases her strengths as a dynamic songwriter and singer. Chris Kocher, WHRW-FM
Her January 2019 release, Unfortunate Point of View, self-produced with the assistance of award-winning engineer Glenn Barratt, is still shared with folk audiences by iconic folk DJs across the world. The album has enjoyed one full year on the Folk DJ charts! It is the #4 album for January with #1 original song. Appearing on the weekly NACC Top 30 Folk charts for nine weeks, Unfortunate Point of View establishes Katherine Rondeau as a major voice on the national folk scene.
The theme for this year’s National Women’s History Month is “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing To Be Silenced.” Katherine’s powerful protest song, “Raise Up Your Hand,” relates to this theme. We hope she’ll sing that at this year’s Festival!

After bursting onto the Philly folk scene in 2015, Katherine was quickly recognized for her rich, bold voice and engaging performance style. How to describe Katherine’s music? Her voice – strong, soulful, warm – rings out like a bell on a clear summer’s night. Her original songs draw audiences in and take them on journeys both real and imagined. Whether sharing stories of love lost and found, calling out robust anthems of peace and justice, or reimagining classic songs from the Folk Revival, there is no mistaking that Katherine has earned her place at the table!
Finally, plan to enjoy Katherine’s performance from New Jersey for our July 18, 2021 Woodstock Folk Festival.
Honor National Women’s History Month with Katherine’s Woodstock Wednesdays Performance!
