Kristin Andreassen, Jefferson Hammer, Lauren Balthrop,  and Lawson White add top-notch harmonies and rhythmic arrangements to their award-winning songwriting with this indie-folk-trio out of Nashville and NYC.

Cello, mandolin, guitar, and weaving male-female harmonies combine in Nashville’s South for Winter - a unique blend that has quickly earned it a reputation as a band to keep on the radar.

Kristin Andreassen, Jefferson Hammer, Lauren Balthrop and Lawson White · 8:30pm


Kristin Andreassen combines award-winning songwriting and percussive dance in performances that have been heralded “inventive” by the New Yorker and “haunting” by NPR’s Folk Alley. Since coming of age with two of America’s most beloved traditional music ensembles (Uncle Earl and Footworks), Kristin has turned her deep knowledge of timeless roots music into a knack for creating original songs with that kind of staying power.

Kristin has now joined forces with Jefferson Hammer, Lauren Balthrop and Lawson White, all acclaimed musicians in their own right, to create this super-trio. Out of NYC, Hammer is a songwriter, guitarist, producer and traditional musicians known for his time playing with the Murphy Beds, Session Americana, and Sarah Jaroz, among many others. Lauren Balthrop comes to the group from a longstanding career writing songs, singing, and playing keyboards with indie groups such as Balthrop AL and Lucius, and just released a solo album produced by Josh Kaufman (Bob Weir, the National, Amy Helm, Hiss Golden Messenger).

As a unit, these 4 bring their weave their various backgrounds, influences, and experiences in the world of folk into a tapestry of songs that are thought provoking, heartfelt, and honest -- all grounded by top-notch harmonies and infectious rhythmic arrangements.

South for Winter · 8:30pm


With elements of folk, gypsy, jazz, and blues, South for Winter’s varying sound is united by delicate harmonies, intricate guitar-work, and earthy vocals. Within its first year, the trio quickly developed an impressive resume - releasing two EP’s, completing both a 15-state national and an international tour, and receiving recognition from Lightning 100 Radio as a top rising artist in Nashville. The trio is now recording its debut album at the world-renowned The Tracking Room studio in Nashville with Grammy-nominated producer Matt Leigh.
