Live Performance with Kirsten Maxwell
September 19 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$35
Bedford Playhouse is thrilled to welcome Kirsten Maxwell to the Playhouse Cafe for a very special performance on Sept. 19.
The accolades keep pouring in for 23 year-old rising star, vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Kirsten Maxwell who has won or been a finalist at multiple Folk Festival Singer-Songwriter events and competitions recently. New York-raised and Nashville-based, Kirsten’s stunning and pure voice has drawn comparisons to the likes of Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell and is evocative of the 1960s folk scene. “I never thought I’d ever hear a voice as angelic and mesmerizing as I did when I first started listening to Joan Baez some 50 years ago, but then I heard the voice and melodies of Kirsten Maxwell,” says Jon Stein, host on WTBQ-FM, NY. Kirsten also performed recently with Bedford’s Paul Shaffer at The Cutting Room in Manhattan and drew a standing room only crowd to the Cinema Arts Centre’s Sky Room. A recent sold-out performance at The Harvey School (Katonah NY) caught the eye of many local Playhouse supporters and we can’t wait to welcome her to the Playhouse.
“I once saw Kirsten Maxwell take the stage in a raucous bar. The patrons were there to drink, not listen. She began a delicate ballad, and by the third line, she had them in the palm of her hand. Kirsten is a strikingly special performer.” – Paul Shaffer
“She opens her mouth and birds fly out.” – Vance Gilbert
