LISTEN: Kate MacLeod, “Every Year Among the Pines”

Feb 1, 2022

LISTEN: Kate MacLeod,

Artist: Kate MacLeod
Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah
Song: “Every Year Among the Pines”
Album: Uranium Maiden
Release Date: February 4, 2022

In Their Words: The subject matter in this song is taken directly from my reading accounts of community members who lived in the small town of Widtsoe, Utah, which is now a ghost town. There’s been a long standing practice of families and descendants of those who lived in that town, in meeting for an annual reunion. I particularly enjoy portraying stories of the American West through research on pioneers, miners, families, outlaws, Native Americans, and historic events from the region that I live in. Knowing first hand of the geography, culture, and some of the people represented in these songs, I find the details of life in the region to be ripe with lyrical content waiting to be sung. Musicians on this track are Kate MacLeod on vocals and acoustic guitars, Dan Salini on pedal steel, Mark Hazel on vocal harmonies, and Robert Dow on acoustic bass. The writing of this song was commissioned from Utah Heritage Arts.” — Kate MacLeod
