Kristin Andreassen returns to Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown. While this is Andreassen's first Mountain Stage appearance as a solo artist, she's no stranger to the show, having appeared with the string band Uncle Earl and the "folk noir" trio Sometymes Why. She also has a background as a dancer, having worked extensively with the traditional percussive dance ensemble Footworks.
Andreassen has recorded albums of original and traditional music with producers John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dirk Powell (Cold Mountain, Joan Baez) and Mark Schatz (Nickel Creek). Her latest album is Gondolier.
