Krista MacKinnon  "After Math"

 
Born in June 1991 in Dundee, Cape Breton, Krysta developed a love for music at a very young age. This love for music began at family gatherings where there was always singing and guitars being played, as well as at her first school Christmas concert, where her grade primary teacher had her class square-dancing.
Krysta always seemed to know she would be involved In music. Her family recently listened to a cassette that her grade one teacher made for her, where she
said "I want to be a singer when I grow up." Krysta's inspiration, George MacRae, passed away in 2001. He was her great-grand father and a well known
fiddle player in his time. Something that she will always hold near to her heart is having had the opportunity to play with him after she began to play the fiddle
at age 9. As she matured in her music, her uncle Doug MacKinnon often accompanied her on stage at various locations, always giving words of encouragement and calming any on-stage jitters. Krysta has attended the Gaelic College in St. Anns on several occasions, as well as participating in many fiddle workshops.
 This has given her the opportunity to receive instruction from some of Nova Scotia!s finest musicians.
For the past 3 years, she has been a member of the musical comedy group "The Fleur-de-lis Trail Players". Krysta had her first experience acting on stage with
this group, and now acting has become another passion of hers. She has also started to compose songs and fiddle tunes (some of which are on the CD), and hopes to release a vocal CD in 2007.
