Following the release of her second solo album Gondolier, Kristin toured solo in support of Black Prairie, Dawn Landes, Aoife O’Donovan, Mipso and Noam Pikelny. This spring, she'll share works-in-progress from new trio recording made with guitarist Chris Eldridge and producer, percussionist and banjo player Shane Leonard. The northeast tour will feature Leonard as well as long-time collaborator and New York-based singer, guitarist and BBC Folk Award winner Jefferson Hamer.
A Portland, Oregon native, Kristin made her way to Tennessee via Montreal, Cape Breton Island, the Canadian arctic, Maryland, and Brooklyn. As a founding Artistic Director of the popular all-ages Miles of Music Camp, she facilitates life-long learning and community, enjoying nothing more than teaching a pile of square dance beginners how to do a Grand Chain.

– The Bluegrass Situation
"At the start of any year, it’s always a challenge to pick a handful of artists who could break out of the musical pack to make a big impact. This deeply soulful artist is easily one of those."
– The Morton Report
“Heartfelt sensitivity gave way to the most wonderful, brilliantly phrased tap dance solo.”
–The Herald Scotsman (Glasgow)
“Gondolier is a beautiful piece of art.”
