“Kirsten Maxwell is an amazing writer and powerful, evocative singer whose performances are a sheer joy. She shines in her own lyrical compositions and in her singular choices of other artists, especially those of Joni Mitchell. Hearing Kirsten sing is uplifting-her future as a performer will be an inspiration in an already marvelous present.“
— Judy Collins, “Singer, Songwriter and fan”
In 2019, Kirsten Maxwell performed at a gala honoring Judy Collins with such notable artists as Jimmy Webb, Suzanne Vega, Nona Hendrix, and Judy herself. The legendary singer was so impressed that she invited her on her 2020 winter tour. Maxwell is one of five artists selected to receive a grant from the 2020 Joe’s Pub Working Group - an artist development program of The Public Theater.
In addition to sharing the stage with Paul Shaffer, Maxwell has also opened for Melissa Etheridge, Tanya Tucker, The Bacon Brothers, and Robert Klein. Maxwell also works in Nashville where she has performed at the City Winery and the iconic Bluebird Cafe.
Kirsten Maxwell is a New York native, raised between Sunnyside, Queens and Huntington, Long Island. She attributes her love of music to her parents who met performing at the famed Amato Opera. Maxwell made her stage debut at age 5, and remained there, changing costumes and styles, exploring opera, musical theater, folk, and everything in between. Her eclectic taste and talent for switching between genres remain, but she can most often be found playing guitar and singing one of her original songs.

ABOUT RIVER SPIRIT MUSIC HOUSE CONCERTS
Our House Concert Series presents touring artists from around the world performing music ranging from Americana, folk, bluegrass, roots, blues, jazz and World music in an intimate setting in a private home in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY (unless otherwise noted).
ABOUT VOICES IN THE HEIGHTS
Voices in the Heights is a concert series dedicated to creating community among musicians and listeners. We love music, especially music that comes from the heart, promotes social justice, and reminds us of the diversity and traditions of our community. While we emphasize presenting singer-songwriters in the acoustic tradition, you can expect to hear an eclectic mix of music in the series. Great music in a concert setting is an interaction between an engaging artist and a receptive audience. A full house calls a performer to new heights and we are, after all, "Voices in the Heights"!
