Speakeasy Records Festival Series Presents:
Exclusive House Concert & Reception with Kristin Diable at her Bywater home.
"There is a young woman out of south Louisiana who has got some serious chops, a peroxide, leggy crooner with a soul like Lucinda Williams, the confidence of Grace Slick and the voice of a decades-ago Bonnie Raitt..... It was Kristin Diable. Devil in a white dress. Biggest thing out of Baton Rouge since rush hour." - Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Chris Rose
Escape the crowds and join us for a truly unique experience during this year's French Quarter Festival!
One of New Orleans' brightest rising talents and 2014 French Quarter Festival performer, singer-songwriter Kristin Diable, welcomes you into her home in New Orleans' thriving Bywater neighborhood for an intimate evening reception, exclusive house concert performance, and dinner and drinks by Saint Lawrence Restaurant. Enjoy a glimpse into the artist's life with this intimate and unplugged evening of music and friends.
This will be our fourth year continuing this ground-breaking, sold out house concert series first held at KD's former Pontalba Residence (where the "Kristin Diable & The City" record was created) during past year's French Quarter Festival and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
House concerts are a one-of-a-kind music experience that allows both artist and listener to truly connect with the songs in an intimate and inviting setting is focused around the music and the people in the room. This is a listening room and musical experience unlike any venue or festival performance. Can't wait to share the night with you all.
*****Tickets are limited to just 25 guests each night, so be sure to grab yours in advance (the first series sold out in just a few days).
Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Chris Rose may have put it best when he described Kristin Diable as, "...a young woman out of south Louisiana who has got some serious chops, a peroxide, leggy crooner with the a soul like Lucinda Williams, the confidence of Grace Slick and the voice of a decades-ago Bonnie Raitt...".
This enigmatic songwriter is indeed a legacy artist in training. Her current release "Kristin Diable & The City" was recorded in the heart of New Orleans' ever mystical French Quarter, within the walls of the haunted and historic Pontalba Building on Jackson Square. A Baton Rouge native, she's traversed the country performing in spaces from speakeasy bar rooms to Carnegie Hall. After a stint in New York City, she has returned to New Orleans to hang her hat.
The current album has garnered national attention, as the band has been regularly touring in support of the release including highlight performances at New Orleans Jazz Fest, Austin City Limits Festival, VooDoo Music Experience, French Quarter Festival, and club dates throughout the US and Europe. Songs from the record have been heard by national audiences on television shows such as HBO’s True Blood and Treme. “Kristin Diable & The City” was celebrated as #2 record of the year by The Times Picayune.
