About Kristin Hamilton Music

Folk-Country Roots

Kristin Hamilton's voice has been described as "one that stirs the soul." Based out of Kansas City, Missouri, she performs as a solo artist and as part of folk/ country/ bluegrass groups Under The Big Oak Tree, Lucy Gray & The Blue House Family Band and Lost Cowgirl Revue. Kristin's original heartwarming songs touch upon topics of family and faith, grief and gratitude.

Hamilton grew up singing at spontaneous musical get-togethers on her family's farm in northwest Missouri. Extended family would gather under a big oak tree on summer nights to sing and play old country and gospel numbers. Being "the shy one" in the group, she was eventually brave enough to accept an invitation to sing at church... that led to an invitation to perform at a local wine tasting. Accompanied by her father and accomplished guitar player, Rocky Cathcart, the show was a great success and eventually led to the formation of Acoustic Folk/ Country Roots band, Under The Big Oak Tree that included some of the best musicians in the area - Simon Fink, Doug Ward, and Jason Riley. Under The Big Oak Tree has released three full length albums which have all been listed as Kansas City area favorites, including the latest release "The Ark". "The Ark" has earned repeated spins on local NPR and community radio stations and featured two of Kristin's original songs, "Daytime Moon" and "Dear Brother". "Daytime Moon" was announced as "The Most Played Song" in 2020 on 90.1 KKFI's River Trade Radio.

In 2018 Kristin joined forces with the Lost Cowgirl Revue for a special tour of Germany, The Netherlands and France. The Revue includes acclaimed singer songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, Julie Bennett Hume, Joy Zimmerman, and Jenna Rae with accompaniment by Chris Hudson, finger style classical guitarist. The Lost Cowgirl Revue entertains audiences with their joyous energy and unique brand of Folk-Americana layered with vocal harmonies, guitars, fiddle, banjo, washboard and spoons.

Kristin also supports her daughter, Lucy Gray Hamilton, in their family band, Lucy Gray & The Blue House Family Band. Lucy is a 13 year old, three time award winning singer songwriter who plays ukulele and fiddle style violin. Kristin's son, Isaac Hamilton, occasionally joins the mother daughter duo on cello, electric bass, and vocal harmony. In January 2020, the group released their first EP "Round & Round" and released a single "Winter Is In My Eyes" in February 2021. The group has performed at festivals and private events throughout the Midwest. Follow Lucy Gray & The Blue House Family Band on Facebook here.
