Thanks ABC/The Fosters for playing our song "Everything" on "The Fosters" on March 10th, 2014!

What folks are saying...

"One of the most entrancingly beautiful and timeless set of songs to grace a debut album in many years"
- Simon Beards, Maverick Magazine, UK 5 Star review!

Special thanks to Simon Beards and Maverick Magazine - and a big hello to our new friends and fans in the UK and Europe! We are currently making plans for our 2015 performances there - can't wait to meet you all in person! Peace, Ron and Terry

"Fine songwriting, married to excellent singing and performing with thoughtful arrangements. An entire program of Burns and Kristy could be only one that would satisfy the soul."

- John Apice, No Depression music blog (full stellar review here:)

“Burns & Kristy's "Caravan" is an amazing journey through some of the best songs I listened to this year... I didn't know 'em and I'm glad to have the chance to give coverage to their music.”
Remo Ricaldone, American Roots DJ, Italy

"BURNS & KRISTY have seduced me with their new CD, Caravan--beautiful vocals and a deep sound that creates a very special atmosphere."
Mike Penard, ISA Radio, France

We'd like to say a big
Grazie tanto and merci beaucoup!


Notes from Ron and Terry

Stay Warm! 

Hello Friends!

So, it is the coldest day of the year, so far. Feeling cozy and grateful for our little home on the creek.
The Burns And Kristy Band, Grietzer,Manning and Davies AND Rebecca Dolch just wanted to send out a "Thank You" to all who came out to our holiday concert! We had such a great time and after all the musicians were paid, we were able to donate $800 to The Cancer Resource Center Of The Finger Lakes!  Also, thank you to Wegmans for donating refreshments for the intermission!

The Seasons...they go round and round 

Hi everybody! It has been a long time since we have checked in. We have had a full summer of beautiful things and some really hard things....Ron's mother (who lived next door to us) became very ill and passed away. We had a season of deep loss, but after all the sadness we did have some fun...3 weddings and trips to water parks..It is amazing how having an 7 year old can throw everything into perspective. "Mom, that was the saddest thing ever. Now let's go to the water park and laugh like crazy". We… Read more

Hellooo out there! 

Hey everybody!
   So, the latest is that the California tour went great and we are having a hard time adjusting to being back. Is it possible to be in two places at once? Survey says? YES! Our hearts are still way out west !  As the ice thaws, I am sure we will fully arrive in Ithaca again.
                   A big hug out to our beloved friend and band member, Janet Cotraccia. Her father passed away while we were out west. After the memorial and time with her family, she flew out and did the last… Read more

Hello Everybody! 

It has been wayyy too long since we updated our blog ...  Here is our past 3 months: With the help of Trespass Music, we released our CD to Folk radio and it has been very well
received all around the world. It has been so much fun seeing which songs people like - you just never know till it gets out there. We debuted at #16 in August and remain in the top 20 for September. Being the oldest "new group" you will ever meet, it is so affirming to have our music touch people and connect us to them.
