The Millay Tapes performance at Steepletop 8/12
I am looking forward to a long overdue trip to Austerlitz in August to visit the great poet Edna St. Vincent Millay’s home Steepletop. I will be performing songs from my tribute album to her “The Millay Tapes”. From the Millay Society: “This will be a special season at Steepletop as we celebrate two milestones in Millay’s life. February 22nd marks the 125th birthday of Edna St. Vincent Millay and in June we commemorate her 100th graduation from Vassar College. There will be events at Steepletop and collaborations at Vassar all year long.” I am so happy to be a part of celebrating Edna!
The Millay Tapes: Katie Barbato in Concert

Katie Barbato is a Philadelphia based singer, songwriter and musician. On this, her first visit to Steepletop, Katie pays tribute to Edna St. Vincent Millay with songs from her album, The Millay Tapes. This collection of 12 songs written by Katie Barbato is set to the poetry of the late great Pulitzer Prize winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.
“I fell in love with her poetry (like countless others before) when I first found a book of her poems at an antique bookstore along a seaside town in New England. I was truly inspired and deeply moved by her passionate writing.”
Katie was a finalist in the 2015 International Songwriting Competition and also writes for television and film including the theme to the movie “Sugar”.
