Kristine Schmitt & Jesse Corrigan
Sunday, July 21st at 10:00 A.M.
Kristine Schmitt’s big voice and joyous presence are simply transformative. Sometimes referred to as the “bluegrass Billie Holiday”, she writes bracing original songs infused with a deep love of rhythm and language, and playfully spiked with doses of early country, blues and jazz. Equally at home in a rowdy stringband, an intimate duo, or roving into an audience a cappella, she loves collaboration most of all, and this time it’s with her most frequent partner in crime, guitar balladeer Jesse Corrigan. Jesse draws from the same musical storehouse as Kristine, and takes his own love of language to even more startling places with resonant and just plain delightful guitar picking. Add in their singular on-stage rapport, and it gets magical, real fast!
