In the studio Kris had worked with producer/engineer Tom Edmonds (Lenny Kravitz, Rolling Stones, NRBQ, Todd Rundgren, The Band, The Roots) and musicians CINDY CASHDOLLAR (Bob Dylan, Asleep At The Wheel), JIM WEIDER (The Band), and GEORGE LAKS & CRAIG ROSS (Lenny Kravitz Band). Onstage Kris has performed WITH folk legend TOM PAXTON, bluegrass legend VASSAR CLEMENTS (Bill Monroe & His Bluegrass Boys, Lester and Earl, Old & In the Way), MIKE GORDON (Phish), VINCE WELNICK (The Tubes, Grateful Dead), TOM CONSTANTEN (Grateful Dead), & DAVID GANS amongst many other lesser-knowns.
Kris has opened for NEW RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE (several times), JOHN HARTFORD, STEVE FORBERT, BR-549, DICKIE BETTS & GREAT SOUTHERN, SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS, DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS, COMMANDER CODY, KINGFISH, JOHN GORKA (several times), TONY TRISCHKA, COL. BRUCE HAMPTON, DEL McCOURY, LEFTOVER SALMON & RAILROAD EARTH. His original style of roots music not only appeals to the folk and bluegrass crowd but rock, blues and jamband crowds as well, garnering kudos from audiences young & old alike.
Through the years Kris Kehr has accumulated a vast catalog of original songs and covers as well as covering a lot of miles before settling down back home in Berks County in 2005. He has toured extensively across the eastern seaboard with years of performance experience under his belt, but is happy to be living back at home performing, writing and recording. Besides playing music he also produces a live music podcast called Black Mountain Underground. He is currently working on a new acoustic album of his own music while performing regularly in State College, the Scranton area and throughout Pennsylvania as well as the greater Berks County area either as a soloist or mandolinist in the dead-tribute band Garcia Grass, playing bass in the original progressive-bluegrass outfit Pavlov’s Dawgs or sitting in on various instruments with one of his many musical friends throughout the area.
