When Kristin Sweetland performs, audiences are immediately stunned into silence by the deft grace and accomplished mastery of her music. Hailed as one of Canada’s “hottest young guitar players,” Sweetland has been much-lauded for her intricate instrumental guitarwork, rich vocals and enchanting stage presence. A born performer and true road-warrior she brings her wild tales of adventure to the stage in a stunning and compelling spectacle. Her albums include “Own Sweet Time,” coming in Fall 2007 and her critically acclaimed debut, “Root, Heart & Crown.” Both albums were produced by Juno award-winning multi-instrumentalist Ken Whiteley, and showcase Sweetland’s stellar guitar stylings alongside powerful, unforgettable melodies and deeply intelligent songwriting. Musically, Sweetland draws on broad influences from folk/roots, classical, flamenco, world music and rock ‘n’ roll traditions in ways that are rich, delicious, utterly refined and unmistakably Sweetlandish.
