Winner: Newcomer of the Year (2010), LiveIreland.com "Livies".

Singer and bodhrán player Christa Burch possesses a singular voice: warm, supple, expressive, intimate -- and instantly recognizable.
Part of a vibrant new generation of American folk singers, Christa deftly marries intuitive musicianship and storytelling through song.

"This is a full-voiced, confident woman at the height of her powers." -- Irish American News
