Kristina Olsen is one of the most entertaining and compelling performers on the international folk circuit. She is a superb multi-instrumentalist (acoustic guitar, steel-body slide guitar, saxophone, concertina, mandolin and piano) as well as an award-winning songwriter with a big bluesy voice.
Her mix of powerful songs ranging from sassy bottleneck blues, lilting ballads, swing jazz to raunch and roll (as well as her hilarious storytelling) makes for a diverse and satisfying musical experience, on stage and on disc.
Born in San Francisco and raised in Haight-Asbury during the 1960’s, Kristina’s approach to music and life was formed by that environment of vital cultural expression, social activism and diverse musical influences.
She now calls Venice Beach, Los Angeles home but rarely sees it from touring ten months a year.
Her 2016 tour will feature her latest recording “Sweet Stillness”, a collaboration with renowned Canadian jazz guitarist Bill Coon.
We are looking forward to hearing her play for us, not to missed
