Guitarist and singer Jefferson Hamer, co-recipient of a 2014 BBC2 Folk Award, and songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kristin Andreassen join together to showcase their newest original music after a spectacular year performing at the Newport Folk Festival, Royal Albert Hall, and Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

They first met over a decade ago in Lyons, Colorado, where Kristin and her band Uncle Earl gathered to rehearse material for their award-winning album Waterloo, Tennessee, produced by Led Zep legend John Paul Jones. Jefferson lived next door, and he and Kristin sung country-style duets in the kitchen, finding common ground in traditional music from both sides of the Atlantic.

Kristin’s song writing earned her a feature on NPR’s Prairie Home Companion (with Jefferson as guitarist-in-tow) and her skills as a backing vocalist and instrumentalist were highlighted on recent UK tours with Jeffery Lewis and Aoife O’Donovan.

Jefferson’s collaboration with songwriter Anais Mitchell brought widespread acclaim in both the USA and the UK, and their award winning album Child Ballads was named one of the 10 Best Folk albums of 2013 by NPR.

Kristin’s new release Gondolier features Jefferson on guitar and harmony vocals, and she contributes vocal harmonies, keyboards, and foot percussion to Jefferson’s electric and acoustic guitar-driven songs.

 “A gifted guitarist and singer, Jefferson Hamer is able to hit close harmonies… and weave gorgeous instrumental lines.” -Acoustic Guitar
