Smart bets: Evie Ladin and Keith Terry

Thigh slaps, hand claps, finger snaps and foot taps typify Evie Ladin and Keith Terry’s uniquely percussive performance style. The energetic pair marries old-time- and blues-inspired folk music with dance onstage, often utilizing creative limb sounds and vocal notes as instrumentation before exercising their more traditional stringed counterparts — the clawhammer banjo (Ladin) and upright bass (Terry), among other instruments. When they’re not touring, Ladin and Terry actively promote artistry among the masses through numerous multicultural projects in and around their Oakland, Calif., home base. Isis Restaurant and Music Hall invites fans to join the acclaimed duo for an intimate evening of “music, hilarious anecdotes and virtuosic dance performances” in the venue’s upstairs lounge on Thursday, March 26, at 7:15 p.m. $10. Limited tables available with dinner reservations. isisasheville.com. Photo courtesy of the artists
