Woodstock, NY is a town known for its ties to a number of festivals aimed at bringing people together through peace, love and of course music, so it's no surprise that the Woodstock Film Festival welcomes not only movies, but musicians as well, and folk-rock singer/songwriter Kirsten DeHaan was among them performing at The Colony Café on October 4th, 2009.

DeHaan is currently based in Woodstock and felt the opportunity to play in the town she calls home was particularly exciting. "I'm thrilled to be able to perform my opening concert during such an exciting weekend in Woodstock," said DeHaan. On the closing night of the Woodstock Film Festival, she and opening act Alyson Greenfield entertained the folks of Woodstock with songs from their respective repertoires. As a preview for DeHaan's EP release on October 6th, she performed a few new tunes from "Thorns On A Crown" as well as some of her older works.

Guitar in hand, DeHaan opened her set with "Decisions," a song from her 2006 EP "Under The Richter Scale". Her voice has a smoky quality that is very pleasing, and highlighted in almost every one of her songs. From "Thorns On A Crown," DeHaan performed "Ms. Daisy" and "1984," both emphasizing her marvelous ability to sing soft and airy, and yet still gritty and powerful.

She went on to cover "Volcano," a song by Irish rock band Bell X1, before moving on to the compelling "I'm Coming Home," a third song from Thorns. As impressive as this track sounds as a recording, it is even more so in person. With the addition of her harmonica, DeHaan draws from her Dylan influences to execute a hauntingly passionate performance. She closed her set with two songs from her previous album and EP releases, bringing the audience back to her beginnings as a recording musician.

The potential of growing success that resides within DeHaan's talents seems endless. She is establishing her presence as a singer, songwriter, and philanthropist through her label SirLady Records, and making her mark in the indie music scene. This Woodstock concert served as a preview for Kirsten DeHaan's official CMJ showcase on Thursday, October 22nd at BLVD in New York City, home to Crash Mansion.
