New York Blues Hall of Fame Induction

stbarts_photo_array_vry_sml_cropOn Sunday, May 4, 2014, Kirsten Thien will be inducted into the NY Blues Hall of Fame. This is a great honor that Kirsten will soon share with a list of greats who have positively impacted the NY State Blues scene and vibe! In this particular ceremony we will also see NY Yankee, Bernie Williams and his pal in Jazz and Blues, Mr. Gil Parris also perform and be inducted. It’s a great honor and if you are in NY State this weekend, plan a morning hike and then join us!

World Tour – Summer 2013

A message from Kirsten:

Hi, Guys!

I write to you with my feet firmly planted. I must say, it is a very peculiar feeling. The new record release is fully underway and doing GREAT (thanks to you!), and my calendar shows two solid months of “Solo Live!” and “Full Band” World Tour dates ahead.

I’ll be anywhere from Texas to Norway via London this summer.
