A chance to experience an unusual musical pairing when American singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Kristina Olsen with Australian cellist Peter Grayling.?Kristina Olsen is a powerfully engaging performer with a blues raw velvet voice, brilliant guitar skills (on acoustic and steel-body slide guitar) and a fine way of crafting a song, from hilarious tales of love-gone-wrong to seriously compelling songs of rare insight and compassion.?
Cellist Peter Grayling takes an instrument rarely seen off the classical stage and weaves it through Olsen’s songs, enriching the ballads with a gorgeous, mellow sound and driving along the bluesy numbers with punchy playing and recklessly passionate solos.
?Dr. Grayling was formerly the principal cellist with the Tasmania Symphony Orchestra and now currently does contract work for the Western Australian Symphony when he isn’t on tour with Olsen.?These two multi-instrumentalists create inspired musical settings, recorded live with the emphasis on the real interplay of a musical partnership honed on stage.
