Kristin Hersh is one of the most critically-acclaimed, pioneering female rock musicians of the past three decades. The New York Times called her “a truly fear-inspiring rock innovator,” Rolling Stone dubbed her band, Throwing Muses, “trailblazing” and “one of alternative rock’s most influential but under-appreciated groups.” Over the course of her career, she has released over 20 albums, including 9 solo records, and several books. Her coming of age memoir, Rat Girl, was chosen by Rolling Stone as one of ten best music memoirs ever written.

Ms. Hersh’s live shows have become a combination of songs and reading from her acclaimed books. The songs are cathartic and sometimes terrifying so it might come as a surprise the in person Ms. Hersh is hysterically funny. Her incisive and self-deprecating wit allows her to occupy the same space as what ails her but also with the audience, as well. She’s the best example of extraordinary things emanating from an ordinary person though, truly, this woman’s work is and has always been extraordinary.

At the tender age of 14 she founded the seminal band Throwing Muses with her step-sister Tanya Donelly (Breeders, Belly). The first signing to England’s prestigious 4AD records but Throwing Muses found themselves at the top of the Village Voice “Pazz and Jop” poll before they even had a recording contract.

Ms. Hersh’s career is long and prodigious so it’s difficult to sum it all up in a short bio.

She played the first official concert when the Windham Ballroom opened in October of 2012 and we are honored to host her performance again.
