Kathrin's musical career began in Greenwich Village at the height of the New York folk music scene of the 1960s. Billed as Kathy King (and still in high school), she shared a bill at the Fat Black Pussycat, a coffee house on MacDougal Street, with Richie Havens, Tiny Tim and the impressionist comic David Frye. The well-known and the soon-to-be frequently dropped in for guest sets.
She joined up with eight other singer/musicians who became the house group at the Cafe Au Go Go. The Au Go Go Singers included several now-famous musicians. She toured as one of Bobby Vinton’s backup singers, including performing at the Copacabana in NY, the Coconut Grove in LA, and on The Ed Sullivan Show.
As an actor, Kathrin has appeared on stage on and off Broadway and in films and TV shows. Kathrin also has performed musical theater and cabaret and has recorded 2 CDs – Better Late Than... and Land of Beginning Again – of mostly her own original songs. Land of Beginning Again is a collaboration with guitarist Charlie Brown.
