With catchy songs, a penchant for story telling, and inspiring lyrics, Kristen delights audiences across the country.
Constantly traveling and touring, Kristen plays nearly 200 shows per year having shared stages with Rusted Root, Dar Williams, David Amram, Noel (Paul) Stookey, Guy Davis, Peter Yarrow, Harry Belafonte and the late Pete Seeger.
