Combining a warm, expressive voice, a superb poetic imagination, and an alluring, rootsy mixture of folk, gospel, and country styles, singer-songwriter Kris Delmhorst plays what she describes as "songs with pavement under their feet, dirt under their fingernails, and sometimes out of sight of land altogether." In the decade since she began performing, Kris has made her presence felt on the acoustic music scene, touring the country and winning first place at the 2001 Telluride Bluegrass Festival's prestigious Troubadour Competition and numerous Boston Music Award nominations.
Whether she's singing delicate ballads, back-porch foot-stompers, or midnight lullabies, Kris's charm, intelligence, and adventurous approach illuminate her music. Tonight she mixes atmospheric originals with selections from her latest CD, an intriguing collection of tunes by 1980s new-wave masters The Cars re-imagined with acoustic instrumentation and Kris’ luminescent, dreamy voice.
