Katelyn Baas (pronounced bahs), of northern Michigan, received her first guitar at the age of eleven and fell in love with the hammered dulcimer six years later while attending a workshop at the Evart Funfest. Ever since then, she has been exploring music projects of all kinds in her mission to bless and encourage others with God’s promises. Katelyn released her debut hammered dulcimer album, The Way of the Cross Leads Home, in 2020, with her Christmas album, Unto Us a Child Is Born, following in 2022. She has performed and instructed at the Evart Funfest and the Midland Folk Music Festival, and her albums have been reviewed by Dulcimer Players News and The Old Schoolhouse. Her desire is to bring life, light, and beauty into a dark world, pointing people to the true source of that life, light, and beauty—Jesus Christ.
