Chris Eldridge and Kristin Andreassen, together... on tour

The Kelowna Folk Club presents:
Kristin Andreassen & Chris Eldridge
Sunday, Apr 19, 2015

House Concert Series
1640 Gillard Dr, Kelowna
Doors 7:00 pm Concert 7:30 pm

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kristin Andreassen has traveled the world with stringband sensation Uncle Earl, set hearts to flutter as one third of the folk-noir trio Sometymes Why, and invigorated audiences as a featured dancer with the Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble. Along the way, she's performed and recorded alongside such maverick talents as John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dirk Powell (Joan Baez, Cold Mountain), New York anti-folk icon Jeffrey Lewis; won a Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for her song "Crayola Doesn't Make a Color for Your Eyes”.

She is presently on tour with Chris Eldridge, one of many featured performers on the new album.
Chris is perhaps best known as a member of the exhilarating aural synthesis that is the Punch Brothers. He was also a founding member of the bluegrass band "The Infamous Stringdusters". They combine bluegrass, contemporary classical, jazz and roots with stunning results. Eldridge is a guitarist and singer who studied guitar with the legendary Tony Rice. Since then, Eldridge has worked with many other musicians, including Paul Simon, John Paul Jones, Marcus Mumford, Justin Timberlake, T-Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, Jerry Douglas, and Del McCoury.

Don’t miss this fascinating pair whose separate talents merge into a truly inspired duo.
