Chanson-O-Gramme 2019 – Banff – Athens

As many of you know, I’ve been offering Chanson-O-Grammes (affordable custom love song commissions) once a year to fans near and far since February 2013. They honour family members, romantic interests, friends, newborns, pets, partners, husbands, wives, and on one occasion, a spirit. From quirky to romantic and in various styles/instrumentation, Chanson-O-Gramme’s are a unique way to celebrate someone special! Here are some of the E-Cards sent along with MP3’s dating back to the inaugural 2013 edition. 🙂

 

I enjoy cycles of 7 so this will be the final year I’ll be upholding this tradition. The first 7 people to order between Jan 14-Feb 7th will receive a special bonus card (by snailmail) commemorating this lucky 7 year! Write to *kristamuir*at*gmail*dot*com to find out how to order yours today! Here are several songs (approved to share) from the 2014 edition. For this final 2019 edition the cost is sliding scale $125-175. Click here and scroll down to read some testimonials.

MARCH & APRIL:

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be heading to the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity this March for the Singer Songwriter Residency! If/when we are presenting new works at the Centre/that are open to the public I’ll post them on fb/twitter/instagram. And as I haven’t played Calgary since 2005 (!), I’ll be performing on March 24th (venue TBC) for those who’d like to hear The Tides live!

April takes me to Athens, Greece to attend Stefanos Rokos’ latest exhibition (he designed the beautiful cover of Leave Alight) and give a performance of The Tides. Details TBA. Other possible Euro dates TBC.

 

Holiday treats – original LL Release!

Just in time for the holiday season! We found the original masters for the first Lederhosen Lucil album that was released in 1999 exclusively on cassette. Now available only on our bandcamp! We’ve included anecdotal liner notes that describe the inspiration for the songs and if you buy a copy for $7 or more LL will send you an autographed photo from the photo archives (see pic below!).
