A free-spirited songstress in the tradition of Joni Mitchell, Kali Seastrand's performance allows audience members to become time travelers as she guides them into a bygone era. Her old soul and choice of instrument help accomplish this, while her fresh take brings new life to the Appalachian dulcimer and traditional folk music. She writes and sings with oozing emotion as she pushes the boundaries of the instrument. Seastrand steps out of an eclectic vapor, bringing her audience music with a sweet mix of droning and vibrant sounds. Using her distinctive vocal timbre, she delivers lyrics that are eloquent, reflective, and narrative. “Seastrand’s impressive command of the instrument, coupled with an amazing voice, immediately engaged me and the enthusiastic audience who wildly applauded her impressive technique and vocal prowess. Her original song “First Avenue,” inspired by “New York City’s Washington Square days of Dylan and company” is indicative of a major talent on the rise.” (River Reporter) As a Sullivan County, NY native, Seastrand has been a noted musician in the area, playing bars, restaurants, hotels, fairs, and festivals, she has proven she can deliver no matter how big or small the venue. Whether sharing the stage with blues legend, Slam Allen, performing at Bethel Woods Center For The Arts "More Than A Meal" or playing on a porch at Porchfest, Seastrand has noticeably displayed her ability to connect with people and create a sense of belonging; which may be her most salient attribute. Seastrand creates music that nourishes the soul and transcends generations.
