A singer, songwriter, and dancer, Carla Gover brings lively energy and a variety of musical styles to the stage. Her original songs range from misty, traditional sounding ballads accompanied by banjo to uptempo pop-influenced songs with a groove.

Carla is a first-place winner of Merlefest's Chris Austin Songwriting Contest as well as the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Award and the Flatrock Music Festival Songwriter Contest.

There are lots of musicians out there claiming to be “authentic,” but Carla Gover is more than that: she’s the real thang. Born and raised in Eastern Kentucky, she was exposed to all the ingredients that go into making a true Appalachian musician of the first order. Carla is a roster artist for the Kentucky Arts Council Performing Arts Directory and the Teaching Artist Directory.

Kentucky Crafted!

Kentucky Crafted is going to be full of KENTUCKY LOVE. I'm playing at 4:15 with Zoey Raven and Arlo Barnette and then sitting in on a few with the músicos fabulosos of Appalatin at 5:30. And then again tomorrow at 10:15, directly followed by Heath Eric and Molly G. Eric and Mitch Barrett. Yee-haw!
