Leif Nilsson Spring Street Studio and Gallery, 1 Spring Street, Chester,
Kristen Graves is a singer/songwriter and humanitarian from Green Bay, living in Fairfield, Connecticut, who was recently listed as part of the “new generation of folk music” in the New York Times and was mentioned in Rolling Stone for her music’s environmental activism. She has shared the stage with Rusted Root, Dar Williams, Peter Yarrow [of Peter, Paul & Mary], and the late Pete Seeger. With catchy songs, a penchant for story telling, and inspiring lyrics, Kristen performs nearly 200 shows a year through the United States and Europe. On her first visit to our series, she’ll be performing her own original songs as well as some classic folk sing-alongs. You’ll be invited to sing, laugh, cry, and enjoy each other as Kristen shares the stories behind her music - from sharing Lincoln Center stage with Peter Yarrow, to sharing lentil soup with Pete Seeger - this is an evening of stories and songs you won’t want to miss!
Music with a conscience. Social justice infused with optimism.
