About this event
It’s rare for an artist to bridge the divide between critical acclaim and dedicated fan engagement. Chris Pureka is a Portland-based singer-songwriter whose body of work has resonated deeply with these seemingly disparate milieus. Her bold vulnerability in processing the intimacies of life in song has long appealed to those listeners who crave authenticity. Chris’s elegant emotionality as a vocalist and her flair and immediacy as a lyricist have garnered her favorable comparisons to Gillian Welch and Patty Griffin. She’s earned accolades from such distinguished taste-making outlets as The New York Times, Paste, Magnet, Billboard.com, and The AllMusic Guide. She’s shared the stage with such diverse and esteemed artists as Dar Williams, The Lumineers, The Cowboy Junkies, Gregory Alan Isakov, and Ani DiFranco. Along the way, Chris has remained fiercely independent, selling nearly 50,000 albums through her own label, Sad Rabbit Records. Hailing from the hills of southern Vermont, Moon Hollow is an acoustic trio that features the songwriting talent of musicians Charlie Peckar and Tim Cardiello. They perform original music in the styles of Americana, early jazz, alt-country and bluegrass.
