“Beautiful and intricate, showcasing her immense understanding of how a folk song should be arranged.” – Diffuser
Kristin Andreassen combines award-winning songwriting and percussive dance in performances that have been heralded “inventive” by the New Yorker and “haunting” by NPR’s Folk Alley.
Since coming of age with two of America’s most beloved traditional music ensembles (Uncle Earl and the clogging company Footworks), Kristin has turned her deep knowledge of timeless roots music into a knack for creating original songs with that kind of staying power. Her solo albums “Gondolier” and “Kiss Me Hello” have both been featured in TV and film, while the track “Doesn’t Make a Color for Your Eyes” earned the John Lennon Song Contest Grand Prize and has been covered by dozens of artists.
Kristin’s new project features Shane Leonard on percussion and banjo and Jefferson Hammer (Session Americana, the Murphy Beds) on guitar. Expect top-notch harmonies and infectious rhythmic arrangements
