Christine Albert
Piano, guitar, accordion and upright bass
"Texafrance Ecoutez!"

Christine Albert's French grandmother lived in Paris and her mother was born in Switzerland, so she was surrounded by the French language and culture throughout her childhood. In a Santa Fe high school French class she discovered the music of Edith Piaf and the sounds of a Parisian caf began to show up in the music of this country/folk singer-songwriter. Throughout her career she has continued to move naturally and gracefully between the genres.
