Kate Griffin is a clawhammer banjo player, singer and composer emerging on the UK folk and world scene. Described as “one of the top banjo players in the country” by virtuoso Dan Walsh, her innovative banjo style combines both traditional UK and American folk, whilst also placing the banjo in a contemporary setting. In 2018 Kate formed award winning global folk collective MISHRA, alongside musical partner Ford Collier, with their debut album released autumn 2019. As of 2021 she also performs as part of critically acclaimed transatlantic neo-folk band THE MAGPIES.

She regularly produces and presents children’s concerts alongside many highly renowned orchestras, ensembles, soloists and venues (including London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Mozart Players, Britten Sinfonia, Wigmore Hall and Opera North). She has worked with CBeebies, BBC Radio 3 and Scala Radio. She is also Founder and Creative Director of Concerteenies.
