Krista Muir

Music

Krista Muir is a composer and musician who performed under her alter ego Lederhosen Lucil for six years until she fell in love with the ukulele in 2006. As Lucil, she played vintage keyboard electro pop and released several independent singles and two full-length albums, Hosemusik (2002) and Tales From The Pantry (2003). She toured North America, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe with DJ, Kid Koala. Once she became a ukulele convert, Muir composed a collection of whimsical tunes recorded with Toronto’s Fembots and Montreal producer Shane Watt for the CD Leave Alight (2007) and the concept album Accidental Railway (2008) about an imaginary city, which The Hour called “ a multilingual pop gem.” A classically trained musician, she has composed music for several films. She is the founder of the Montreal Ukulele Bizarro Festival, teaches private lessons, and programs a monthly ukulele play-in at a Montreal cafe. (PF)
