About the Talent: Matt & Kristin Brooks

Matt & Kristin Brooks are a husband and wife duo from the Eastern Iowa corridor, and formed their first duo in Austin, Texas after making the move in 2001. Booking themselves as ‘Cosmic Texas Music’ they infused the spirit of Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris with a Texas version of the alt-country of the time. Since returning in 2012, Matt is often in the pit for both Theatre Cedar Rapids and City Circle, while Kristin has been staying active behind-the-scenes in the local theater community. They have hosted evenings at the Opus Concert Café, been featured guests in several SPT Theatre shows, and even performed at Brucemore’s Cabaret in the Courtyard series. This show will be a balance of original material and covers reflecting their 20+ years performing together.
