Kristia Di Gregorio

Coffee house concert this weekend

Music that paints with heart, from the heart: Kristia Di Gregorio

The Sooke Folk Music Society Coffee House kicks off with its first show this year: musician Kristia Di Gregorio.

Voted Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2006 Vancouver Island Music Awards, Kristia has been featured on the Girls with Guitars album series, at Music West, the Western Canadian Music Awards, and Canadian Music Week.

She also performed at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, the Orpheum and the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver.

Her songs are a patchwork of a life lived, much like the lives of the unruly women of the past she draws her inspiration from. With grace, she creates lush and evocative settings for stories of artists, soldiers, women and merchant sailors.

The power of Di Gregorio voice has an edge and a depth that makes her music unique.

She sings of love lost, love unfilled and broken hearts, with her floating melodies leaving the listener yearning for more.

The show will be this Saturday at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1962 Murray Rd. Doors open at 7 p.m. with open stage at 7:30.

Tickets are available at the venue.
