Hailed as one of Canada’s “hottest young guitar players,” Kristin Sweetland has been much-lauded for her intricate instrumental guitarwork, rich vocals and enchanting stage presence. A born performer and true road-warrior, Sweetland brings her wild tales of adventure to the stage in a stunning and compelling spectacle. Her albums include “Own Sweet Time,” released 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 playing alongside powerful 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.
