CROSS-POLLINATION XCVIII - TUES MAY 30TH - 7:30-10 PM
KRISTIN DIABLE
TAM LIN MUSIC

When Kristin Diable says she plays "roots music," she is as much describing an approach as a genre. Her stripped down brand of songwriting has been compared to that of Lucinda Williams, Neil Young and Janis Joplin.

Since uprooting from her hometown, Baton Rouge, LA to relocate to Manhattan's East Village in 2003, Kristin Diable has taken on life with a truly troubadour spirit. Kristin has toured extensively, cris-crossing the country, often sleeping in the back of a mini-van with her pet Chihuahua, Cash, named for the man in black.

Tam Lin Music is a catch-all name for songs written and performed by Paul Weinfield. Paul was born in New York City, where he lives now (after some forays into the world beyond.)

Paul's songs have been compared to those of David Byrne, Jeff Buckley, Nick Drake, and Sufjan Stevens. They draw on an eclectic range of influences, from traditional folk music to modal jazz to post-punk to Tin Pan Alley standards.

Tam Lin is a fairy king in old Scotch ballads who magically impregnates women. Paul believes that songs are like children: they come from you but leave after a while. If you're interested in adopting one of his songs, please do.
