Kristin Hersh of the legendary Throwing Muses comes to Keene, with Fred Abong opening!
As a musician, Kristin Hersh has had the best of both musical worlds. Although she launched her solo career in 1994, she has continued to perform and record with the Throwing Muses, the seminal college band she helped found in the 1980s. This point was underlined when her record label released the solo album The Grotto simultaneously with Throwing Muses in 2003. Hersh has also divided her modes of musical expression between acoustic and electric formats, creating lush pop songs and spare, haunting folk songs. "Though one can construct a narrative of her work that creates a plausible course of artistic development and linearity," wrote Marshall Bowden in Pop Matters, "the fact is that Hersh's work has a dual nature: it changes depending on what she is experiencing at the time she writes the songs on any given album."
