Kristin Andreassen combines award-winning songwriting and percussive dance in performances that have been heralded “inventive” by the New Yorker and “haunting” by NPR’s Folk Alley. Since coming of age with two of America’s most beloved traditional music ensembles, Uncle Earl and the clogging company Footworks, Kristin has turned her deep knowledge of timeless roots music into a knack for creating original songs with a similar kind of staying power. Now based in Nashville, Kristin has become a respected voice in songwriter circles, with music recently heard on Showtime’s The Affair and ABC’s Nashville. Kristin has been a featured performer on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion; her dancing feet have been heard in the film Cedar Rapids; and NPR’s Mountain Stage chose her 2015 performance as one of year’s ten best.
