Seattle-based folk group Kuinka headlines Crystal Bay Casino

Kuinka plays Crystal Bay Casino on Saturday, May 27.

Indie folk/Americana band Kuinka is making its way to Tahoe's North Shore.

"A reinvention rather than a refutation, the name Kuinka comes from the Finnish for 'how'; how does a band bristling with spirited creativity continue to evolve artistically and challenge themselves while staying true to their own roots?

"For Kuinka, the answer comes in the form of letting go: a joyful acquiescence to faith in their cumulative love of songwriting and shared experience, regardless of genre or instrumentation," states the band's online biography.

Kuinka debuted in 2014 with "The Wild North," and is on the verge of releasing an all-new EP — "Stay Up Late" — on Friday, June 2. The songs, according to the bio, "ring with the vibrancy of exploration and discovery."

"We've spent our time as a band in pursuit of a unique sound that captures our energy and essence," said vocalist, guitarist and percussionist Miranda Zickler.

"Once we came together and started to work on the new singles, we knew it was time to redefine ourselves. We'd love for our music to be a soundtrack to adventure. The change represents finding your way, for both us and our listeners."
