Kristin Hersh’s prolific career has seen her heralded the queen of the alternative release. This will be an evening in the intimate surroundings of the Music Room with a master guitarist and songwriter. Expect an authentic performance featuring songs from her 30-year, 20-plus-album playbook, as well as her unique solo work.
Kristin Hersh’s new album Clear Pond Road is a cinematic road trip; a series of personal vignettes from a fiercely independent auteur, sitting plush with layers of all-consuming strings and mellotron. It’s a watershed moment in a career overflowing with creative firsts and inspirational thinking; an elegant piece of personal reportage, a home movie caught in time.
Previously, the juxtaposition of light and dark has been essential to the drama of Throwing Muses and 50FOOTWAVE, but this solo set is something of a departure; more inward looking, quieter but outspoken, underpinned by background noise for ambience and awkwardness.
“Few artists understand the intensity of living one’s art like Hersh.” — The Guardian
“A fearless rock innovator” — The New York Times
“Her songs have always been both confessional and formally challenging; they expose her, but also evade us, throwing down clues and scurrying into dark thickets before revealing anything more.” — NPR
“Kristin Hersh’s tough, instinctive wail, has been one of the greatest sounds in American underground rock for decades.” — Stereogum
