Krista Detor

news_kristapromo_accordionstars.jpg

Indiana-based pianist and singer-songwriter Krista Detor's latest recording and accompanying book were inspired by a chance trip on Michigan's Lake Huron with good friends and even better red wine. Detor describes that experience, as well finding herself the only American writer featured in a recent BBC production honoring the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth.

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight," 2/19/15 & 10/28/14. Listen weekly on Tuesdays, 1:30 p.m., or via podcast.)
