Biography

Keltic Kudzu was formed at the turn of the 21st century by Maggie Anderson. Since then, the band has grown both in size and talent by leaps and bounds. KK enjoys surprising audiences with interesting and often nontraditional arrangements of traditional songs and tunes, incorporating many "world" musical influences into the music, and especially blending traditional celtic sounds with the sounds of the southern U.S. The musicians in KK come from a variety of musical backgrounds including classical, pop, rock, bluegrass, Indian, and punk, bringing a fresh new sound to celtic music.
