Kristin Hersh

Naked Soul

Friday, April 28, 2017
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Kristin Hersh is an American singer, songwriter, and author known for her confessional songwriting style in solo work and with the bands Throwing Muses and 50FootWave. The New York Times has said of her style: “Her plastic, sometimes obsessively circular song structures emphasize staggered rhythms and extreme dynamic shifts, and her voice, a carnal cry that pushes through her body gathering up air, lends her often oblique lyrics an oracular veneer.” Hersh is an advocate of independent collaboration and much of her music has been released on independent labels and online.


About Naked Soul

Naked Soul presents performances from some of the country’s top singer/songwriters without microphones or amplifiers, as if the music were, acoustically speaking, naked. The musicians in the series draw upon the universal themes inherent in Himalayan art—spirituality, peace, tolerance, wisdom, compassion—on select Friday evenings. Learn More
