People the world over recognize this kind of talent. Beth Chrisman has captivated audiences on stages everywhere, from performances on Mountain Stage and A Prairie Home Companion, to the International Bluegrass Music Association, and many new fans in Angers, France and Toronto as an artist with Project ATX6. Bluegrass Situation writer Devon Leger sums it up perfectly: “…Beth Chrisman is a firebrand, and one hell of a performer!”
Born in Kentucky, and raised in Fairbanks, AK, Chrisman found her community in the music she grew up with. Since arriving in Austin in 2006, being a natural talent and a multi-faceted artist, she easily connected with several local musicians of many genres to perform and collaborate with. Whether playing with The Carper Family, High Plains Jamboree or her honky-tonk solo project Missy Beth and the Morning Afters, Chrisman is always a standout talent, mastering the fiddle, banjo, and breathtaking harmonies.
You have the chance to see and hear for yourself when Beth Chrisman plays tonight, Tuesday Feb. 7, at Sagebrush, sharing a bill with fiddler extraordinaire Sparkle-Grass. The music starts at 8 p.m.
