Cathy Ponton King

No Friction, No Fire

Cathy Ponton King plays Telecaster guitar, BLUES, ORIGINAL MUSIC, jazzy blues, ‘Nawlin’s music and SWING, Rock ‘n Roll/rhythm and blues and sweet ballads. She was born in Washington DC and attended the University of Md. and earned her degree in Journalism, and subsequently worked at ABC news after college, before making the decision to put journalism on the back burner as the call to sing, write and perform music was overwhelming.

Over the years she has played at many events, clubs, outdoor concerts, great blues festivals, (such as Springing the Blues in Jacksonville Florida for 20,000 attendees, and the BlueBird Festival in Largo Maryland with such greats as Little Milton and the Holmes Brothers) -and the band plays all kinds of venues: festivals and clubs, receptions, corporate events, parties, city festivals, and many outdoor summer shows at theatres.

Cathy and her husband Jeff live in Vienna Virginia and continue to write and record and her band is in demand for all kinds of music festivals and events for the soulful and high energy show. Cathy’s set features a mix of her love of traditional blues, mixed with her swing, and ballads and rock and roll upbeat songs which brings the dancers to their feet.
