Kate Wadey Trio brings silky sounds to Zetland

ZETLAND: A couple of weeks ago, I got to hear the Kate Wadey Trio at Ruby’s Socials – a classic outdoor music club in Zetland.

It was a balmy night and Kate’s voice was silky on classics like “Tea for Two”, “There’s a lull in my life”, and “I didn’t know what time it was”. She also sang some lovely songs from an album she wrote during Covid times when she was “very pregnant” and which will be released on CD and vinyl later this year as Moon Songs.

If you haven’t been to Ruby’s, do yourself a favour and go. Ruby’s is taking a Winter break but the “socials” will be back in Spring when you should check them out. Part of the fun is watching the locals from the surrounding units getting set up on their balconies to enjoy their drinks with a free evening of jazz wafting up to them from down below.

Thanks @sima.jazz for keeping the great live music coming.
