Tickets $16, $14, $5 “…he is wildly individualistic, a powerhouse of intensity, a man that packs ferocity in his virtuosity in what is unabashedly deep roots, old time, ‘kiss my ass, I play the country blues and I play it mean, in my kind of way.'” — TheCountryBlues.com

KRISTIN ANDREASSEN TRIO @ One Longfellow Square
May 27 @ 8:00 pm

Kristin Andreassen is a songwriter and a percussive dancer who brings both of those talents to live performances that have been called “inventive” (The New Yorker) and “haunting” (Folk Alley). This winter, she’ll be recording and playing limited tour dates with Eau Claire-based drummer and multi-instrumentalist Shane Leonard (Kalispell Band, Field Report). Kristin’s first musical obsession was American old-time music – she played guitar and fiddle with the groundbreaking string band Uncle Earl (w/ Abigail Washburn, Rayna Gellert & KC Groves) and danced with the Appalachian clogging ensemble Footworks. She 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”. Her carefully crafted lyrics have notably explored both the brightest rooms and darkest corners of the human experience with a gently deceptive simplicity that rewards close listening.

Chaos ensues. During a seance, two ghosts appear. Charmaine recognizes Bud as an old flame. Bud attempts to put a move on all three women.
