Kristin Hersh

with special guest oRSo (solo)

4544 N Lincoln Ave · Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall · 773.728.6000

  • Kristin Hersh

    Kristin Hersh has released more than 20 records with Throwing Muses, 50FOOTWAVE, and as a highly regarded solo artist. A renowned singer, songwriter and guitarist, Kristin is also the author of an acclaimed memoir based on her teenage diary titled Rat Girl.


    oRSo is the brainchild of Phil Spirito. Since 1998 Spirito has taken songs written on various stringed instruments and spun them into many different sonic experiences. From duos to 15 piece oRSorchestras, Spirito retains a mix of folk, jazz, chamber, blues, and outsider style that continues to surprise. This solo show will present a rare opportunity to see his songs stripped down to their bones.
