After a week of volunteering at Girls Rock! DC, not only will my campers be playing 9:30 that morning, but then I will be playing that night with Olivia & the Mates, as part of Phazefest. What a trip that will be!

The Players Band are back at Artscape! Hopefully it won't be too hot (yeah, RIGHT...).

I'm coming of drummer hiding again to play with Truth Tables at the Depot!

The Bonnets are back in the studio in the middle of the month to finish our upcoming album, as well as playing a few shows here and there.

Got a whole slew of solo farmers markets gigs, too.

Check out all my dates here.

Gotta keep running. Love ya all!

Been really busy playing catch up with everything involving The Scotch Bonnets, so I haven't really had a chance to update this page. But I wanted to let you know about a couple non-Bonnets shows I have coming up:

TOMORROW, I'm playing solo at a benefit for local Baltimore musician Jim Buckley who is fighting against bladder cancer. Specifically, I'll be playing to honor the memory of my dear friend Nancy Marion who succumed to Leukemia last year. I hit at 1pm. FUCK CANCER!

Coming up later this month, I have gigs with Olivia & the Mates at the Clarendon Grill and Roofers Union. And in March, my new duo act with Bonnets bassist-turned-drummer Dan Breen will be playing Hatchet Night at the Waterfront Hotel and at Trinacria Cafe. PLUS! The Players Band will be headlining at stage at this year's Light City Festival! So exciting!

Check the shows section for all the details. Hope to see you at one of these dates!


Happy New Year, happy birthday, Bob, and all that jazz! (from The Scotch Bonnets) Fri, 27 Jan 2017 14:56:36 +0000 http://thescotchbonnets.com/news/happy-new-year-happy-birthday-bob-and-all-that-jazz_1314 http://thescotchbonnets.com/news/happy-new-year-happy-birthday-bob-and-all-that-jazz_1314 Private Lessons, Hatchet Night, Holiday Sets and How! Thu, 20 Oct 2016 22:02:15 +0000 http://ladyhatchet.com/news/private-lessons-hatchet-night-holiday-sets-and-how_1310 http://ladyhatchet.com/news/private-lessons-hatchet-night-holiday-sets-and-how_1310 Wow, so much to fill you in on!

Firstly, hi. How's it going? I know, it's been awhile.

Secondly, I started teaching music lessons independently! Yep, I am currently accepting new students through out DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia, and I would LOVE to come to your house to teach you or your kid to play guitar, bass, sing, even beginner drums! If you're interested, hit me up (note: the "Contact" section of this website isn't working, so email me directly at misforbes@hotmail.com). 

Thirdly, I'm am STOKED to announce the creation of HATCHET NIGHT!, my monthly residency at The Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore. Every first Wednesday of the month, from now through 2017, I will be pulling from my musical bag of tricks and performing with one of them. One month, it'll be with The Scotch Bonnets, another month Olivia & the Mates. I also hope to maybe perform as a duo with one of my local drummer friends or with any one of my many talented friends from all over the world! Every month, it'll be something different but always something awesome. Check out the shows page for details as they emerge.

Lastly, I need to throw this out into the universe: I am available to play secular holiday tunes for any and all holiday parties that need music! If I can flex my ego for just a moment, I have a pretty great cocktail set of songs I can play on guitar or piano, and I'd LOVE to play your party. Email me up to talk turkey about details and rates.

Stay awesome.

Coming to Boston for an epic show with Westbound Train, 9/16!

Opening for The Skints! And The English Beat! (from The Scotch Bonnets) Mon, 06 Jun 2016 16:38:11 +0000 http://thescotchbonnets.com/news/so-many-amazing-summer-shows-opening-for-the-skints-and-the-english-beat_1307 http://thescotchbonnets.com/news/so-many-amazing-summer-shows-opening-for-the-skints-and-the-english-beat_1307 Something old, something new, something in between for summer 2016?!!! Wed, 01 Jun 2016 00:36:16 +0000 http://ladyhatchet.com/news/something-old-something-new-something-in-between-for-summer-2016_1306 http://ladyhatchet.com/news/something-old-something-new-something-in-between-for-summer-2016_1306 Oh dear, Kristin here. Has it really been A YEAR since I updated this site?? Man... I'd say I suck, but really I feel like I've been kicking ass with The Scotch Bonnets. We've been gigging practically non-stop... since I finished playing guitar with THE SLACKERS! Okay, I do suck for not posting all about that fairy tale come true; that was a major life accomplishment. If you want to relive the adventure, check out my old Facebook posts; I posted all about it there. But oh my lord, while that was happening, I didn't have any time to do anything besides learn TUNES (I think I topped out around 50!)... Anywho, I'm rambling. Just wanted to say hey to any of y'all who check this site. All my dates for the summer are current: solo farmers market gigs, gigs with the Bonnets, The Players, and Olivia Mancini & The Mates.

But hey, dig this! I FINALLY got my old URL, www.kristinforbes.com back from the Internet thieves who stole it from me, like, ten years ago! If you actually saw me back in the early 2000's, maybe still have my first EP, and were wondering where I went, whelp. I'm baaaack (on the web)!!!! But really, I never left you...

And, as Madonna once said about summer, adapt to the heat. Hope to see you at a show or two. :)
