Kristina Olsen - Folding Bicycle

Artist: Kristina Olsen

Song: Folding Bicycle

Album: Live From Around The World (1997)

This selection of live recordings from around the world is an excellent representation of this charming and witty artist. Included, as seperately programmed tracks, are many spoken introductions which are an integral part of Kristina's live shows. The varied guitar and piano accompaniment complement good lyrics sung with warmth and conviction. Highly recommended.

To some extent, the recordings and live shows of Kristina Olsen are the result of her childhood in the musically fertile San Francisco of the 1960s, where she was exposed to blues, psychedelic rock, folk, and a variety of other styles. She is as comfortable with a self-penned acoustic ballad as she is with a gritty, classic blues tune by Robert Johnson. Olsen plays guitar and piano, but also plays 13 other instruments, most of which can be heard on her various recordings, which feature well-known traditional songs and blues as well as her own compositions.
