Downtown Concert Series: Folk musician, Kristin Andreassen

October 22, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

A skilled guitarist and fiddler, Andreassen is also well-known for her lyrical prowess, having been described by The New Yorker as “inventive” and by The Boston Globe as “Sublime. Like a watercolor painting set to music.”

Drawing her inspiration from American folk music, Andreassen played with stringband Uncle Earl and toured with the Appalachian clogging ensemble Footworks. She has also worked with John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin and Dirk Powell, a prominent contributor to the “Cold Mountain” soundtrack.

While holding true to traditional American roots, Andreassen infuses her music with experiences she had living on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island, in a broken-down tour bus on a Maryland tobacco farm, in a Brooklyn walk-up, and the quiet streets of Nashville. Earlier this year, she released the second album of her work, “Gondolier,” which the Raleigh News & Observer described as, “Elegantly understated acoustic pop.”
