Kristin Andreassen: Crayola Doesn’t Make a Color for Your Eyes


Sometimes 64 colors just aren’t enough. So says Kristin Andreassen – an award-winning singer/songwriter who will be teaching and performing at Voice Works: Centrum’s Festival for Singers. On Thursday, June 27, 2013, she’ll be performing as part of the Women’s Singer/Songwriters Showcase (purchase tickets online).

Kristin also leads the “Concerts for Kids” performance on Friday, June 28, 2013, at 11 am at the Fort Worden Chapel building. Kids attend for free, adults pay $5 at the door.

These public performances are the culmination of the Voice Works workshop, where students of all abilities improve their skills in a full-immersion week.

Kristin has toured three continents as a member of the celebrated old time string band Uncle Earl, the “folk noir” trio Sometymes Why, and as a clogger and educator with the Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble.

Her debut solo album Kiss Me Hello features the single “Crayola Doesn’t Make a Color for Your Eyes,” which won the John Lennon Song Contest Grand Prize for Children’s music, has been used in weddings, choir recitals, marching band performances, and topped the charts on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Kids’ Place Live.
