Special international guest artist: Kristina Olsen (USA)
Kristina Olsen is one of the most entertaining and compelling performers on the international folk circuit.
A fine instrumentalist (acoustic guitar, steel-body slide guitar,
saxophone, concertina and piano) as well as a powerful songwriter with a
big bluesy voice, Kristina has audiences around the world coming back for
more. Her mix of strong songs in the troubadour tradition, some
jazz-inspired sounds and powerful bottleneck blues (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 1960s, 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.
