Woodwalk welcomes back Krista Detor with master story teller Arbutis Cunningham on Friday, August 10.
With her highly acclaimed album, Mudshow (“A small miracle.” – Rolling Stone) Krista Detor became established as a gifted player on the world stage. Together with partner and producer, David Weber, she’s since released the follow-up album, Cover Their Eyes (“One of the best albums of the year.” – Revolver) continuing to push the edges of the genre while remaining close throughout to the lyrical thread that defines her work.
She’s reached #1 on the Euro-Americana chart and her music has been featured at the Cannes Film Festival and broadcast on NPR, PBS, the BBC. She’s appeared on both U.S. and European television and collaborated on the CD and Stage show Wilderness Plots, which has received rave reviews and she continues to tour throughout the U.S..
Recently, Krista was honored to be chosen as part of the Darwin Songhouse, with 7 other songwriters in Shrewsbury, England, writing songs for 7 days to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin in his hometown. The event, subsequent concert and live CD release were covered extensively by the BBC.
March 15, 2010 brought the European release of Chocolate Paper Suites – Krista’s 4th solo album – a series of 3-song suites each connected by theme and imagery, inspired by the works of Lorca, Dylan Thomas and Darwin, among other thinkers, artists and experiences.
“Detor is one of the most touching and gifted US songwriters. A darkly beautiful singer and pianist, she creates original, very appealing melodies filled with absorbing and elliptical wordplay.” – The Scotsman Newspaper
