It's here at last!

The e-book/double CD Kristina’s fans have been waiting for! They Paid Us in Tub Time - Stories & Songs of a Songstress Troubadour by Kristina Olsen.

They paid us in Tub Time

This modern, madcap memoir/travelogue/double CD traces the life of songwriter/troubadour Kristina Olsen through her childhood in Haight-Ashbury, California in the wild '60’s, to her touring the world as a professional musician. Watch Kristina read a chapter from the book.

Bookings strongly advised as new Council regulations limit audience to 50!

Packed with laughter, sex, sadness, adventure, and misadventure, this is an intimate insight into the truth of a woman who never took the conventional path, and who’s got the gift to tell us how it really was. Her musical calling has taken her to worldwide stages and festivals such as: Philadelphia Folk Festival, Vancouver Folk Festival, Kerriville Festival (where she won the Songwriter Competition), Celtic Connections in Scotland, Bluesfest and Woodford Folk Festival in Australia, and has had her songs covered by Eric Bibb, Fairport Convention, Mary Coughlan, Mollie O’Brien, and Maddy Prior among others.

Twenty original Kristina Olsen songs are embedded throughout. Ten are brand new, nine are oldies with new arrangements, plus one from a previous album.Entry by optional donation ($30/$15).
