Kora Feder is a rising voice in the new generation of folk songwriters up to the task of confronting the times we live in. Feder’s debut solo EP, Marigolds, was met with glowing reviews, described as “a melodic salutation to all that is neglected and forgotten by a world at the mercy of Father Time; the carefully conceived work of a thoroughly engaging and exceptionally capable storyteller” (A Lonely Ghost Burning, UK). 2019 brings the release of her first full length album, In Sevens. The record has already drawn comparison to Pete Seeger (Roots Music Report) and been called “stunningly good” (Ear to the Ground).
Performing both as a solo singer-songwriter and supporting instrumentalist since the age of 15, Feder has appeared on stages across the world, from a weekend special on Thai PBS in Bangkok, to folk festivals across the United States. In 2018 she was chosen to perform in songwriting showcases at the Kerrville Folk Festival and Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and was a main stage act at Northern California’s acclaimed Strawberry Music Festival along with Greg Brown, Nicki Bluhm and Del McCoury. Music veteran Joe Craven described her Strawberry set as “brilliant and life changing.”
Feder grew up in the Northern California music scene playing clawhammer banjo and mandolin with parents Rita Hosking and Sean Feder. She currently calls Brooklyn, NY a home.
