Bluegrass Special 

Christine has been featured in this month's issue of the Bluegrass Special, in a superb, in-depth biographical article written by David McGee.

McGee's long career and exceptional skills in music journalism have lead him to writing about many of the the world's legendary entertainers, including biographies on such celebrated musical figures as BB King, Carl Perkins, and most lately, Steve Earle.

City Winery NYC with the great Willie Nile April 2016

"When Christine Santelli sings you can see the pain, the joy, the passion, and the experience of all women in the world all at one time. Its' deep. It's soulful. And its meaningful. She has the wisdom of the ages in her voice and you can see it right there on her face. She's a revelation."-Willie Nile
