New Concert Window Series!

On the 4th Sunday of the month, Kristin hosts a kitchen party wherever she happens to be, and you're invited.

Sunday, July 24th - Live from KC Groves' kitchen in Lyons, Colorado on the eve of the Rockygrass Festival.

Sunday, August 28th - Live from Nashville with Uncle Earl bandmates on a break from rehearsing for their first reunion tour in five years.

KRISTIN ANDREASSEN is a songwriter and percussive dancer who merges those skills in performances and recordings that are both inventive and deeply rooted in American traditional music. 2015 saw the release of her first studio album 'Gondolier', with tours supporting Black Prairie, Dawn Landes, Aoife O’Donovan, Mipso and Noam Pikelny. Her debut record Kiss Me Hello included the award-winning “Crayola Doesn't Make a Color for Your Eyes” which went to #1 on kids' radio and has been covered by dozens of artists ranging from Tyne Daly to high school marching bands.

While she's best known for her smart and emotive original lyrics, Kristin got her start in traditional music – she played guitar and fiddle with the groundbreaking stringband Uncle Earl (w/ Abigail Washburn, Rayna Gellert & KC Groves) and danced with the Appalachian clogging ensemble Footworks. She first turned her attention to songwriting with the "folk noir" vocal trio Sometymes Why (w/ Aoife O'Donovan & Ruth Ungar) where her bandmates lovingly dubbed her "the mistress of metaphor". Kristin has a knack for writing songs that explore the darkest corners of the human experience with a gently deceptive simplicity that rewards close listening.

An explorer at heart, Kristin has made her way to Nashville via New York City, Maryland, the Canadian arctic, Cape Breton Island, Montreal and her native Portland, Oregon (in reverse order). When called upon to do so, Kristin calls a great square dance.
