Join singer-songwriter Kristina Jacobsen for an intimate evening of original songs for the release her new solo album, "Shelter," in her last Albuquerque show before she moves to Italy for one year to tour and record. Deeply inspired by what she calls "honky tonk americana," this album also goes further afield, both in content and in sound: to Italy, to Denmark, to the Navajo Nation, and to Finland. For this show, she will be joined by Colorado-based guitarist/songwriter, Jason Murray, and other special guests. Admission ($15) includes a copy of the new album.



“Nominated for three New Mexico Music Awards, Kristina Jacobsen’s first album,

Three Roses, proves that she is a certified country singer/songwriter who

couldn’t be more authentic if she had been born backstage at the Louisiana

Hayride in Shreveport, a program that she celebrates in a song of the same

name. She delivers her songs in a yodeling alto that can warm your heart, bite off

a searing denunciation, or celebrate good times with equal fervor. Her songs

revolve, for the most part, around family, both blood and chosen, and she is

especially adept at portraits. “Inez” paints a Navajo woman—“A Latter Day Saint,

but she drinks pop and whisky”—who’s been beaten down but not conquered.

“Has-Been Cowboy” flips off a man turned into a bitter bully with a limp. There’s

grit, dust, desolation, and abandonment—hey, it’s country music—and love and

redemption enough to make up for it. Jacobsen, who plays guitar and lap steel, is

backed by a fine group of musicians, and they help her, as she says in her

song “Ms. Loretta Lynn,” “sing it sassy . . . sing it downright brassy.” Mel Minter
