Armed with a sharp eye for details and extreme emotional intelligence, American singer songwriter Chris Pureka creates folky sorrowful songs of longing, loss and hope. She comes to The Met with with her third album, How I Learned To See In the Dark.

“Her tunes have the grave Appalachian flavor of Neil Young and Gillian Welch; her guitar playing is subdued but quietly virtuosic. And her voice can be a desolate whisper or a bitter accusation.” – New York Times

“For a woman who frequently performs solo and whose compositions are more quiet than clanging, Chris Pureka is making a lot of noise.”– Billboard Magazine

Chris is supported by Ramsbottom duo, Horses on the Move. Featuring Damien Heakin on guitar and vocals, and Lucy Whitton on piano and vocals, Horses on the Move create their own blend of cosmic country rock.
