About the Event
Cofounders of powerhouse acoustic quartet Kristen Grainger & True North, singer-songwriters Kristen Grainger, and Dan Wetzel’s duo performances resonate deeply with audiences listening for well-crafted songs, skillful instrumentation, and beautiful vocals. The duo’s onstage chemistry sparks and smokes as they bring to life their songs about the extraordinary moments in ordinary life, opening and warming hearts wherever they go. A songwriter whose star is rising, Kristen was named, alongside Brandi Carlile and Dolly Parton, one of the Women Who Wrote Our 2020 Soundtrack by The Bluegrass Situation. She won the 2020 USA Songwriting Competition (folk), and she has won or been a finalist in some of the nation’s most prestigious songwriting contests, including Telluride Bluegrass Festival (CO), Wildflower Festival (TX), Merlefest (NC), and Kerrville Folk Festival (TX). An accomplished singer-songwriter who toured nationally as a solo artist, Dan is also a luthier who handcrafts musical instruments, including most of the ones he and Kristen perform with, that look and sound beautiful. His superb skills, particularly on guitar, both flat-pick and fingerstyle, give True North’s songs their driving groove. Their 2020 release, Ghost Tattoo, was named one of the Top 20 Albums of 2020 by Folk Alley’s Listeners Choice, hitting #1 on folk radio charts for both albums and singles. According to Folk Alliance International, Ghost Tattoo was the second most-aired album on folk radio in 2020.
