Scotland, England, I am coming for you!
BRIGID KAELIN is a singer, storyteller, blogger and multi-instrumentalist who has appeared on BBC, NPR and received many "Best Singer-Songwriter" awards in Louisville, (she is also Elvis Costellos musical Saw player of choice). With 7 albums/EPs of original alt-country-cabaret music, she's toured the world. Brigid's live show is entertaining, upbeat, but poignant. The addition of Steve Cooley lifts her originals, making the show reminiscent of old-time variety hours.
Also a sought-after sidewoman, Brigid has performed with artists ranging from Nick Keir and Adam Holmes to Elvis Costello, usually on musical saw or accordion.
STEVE COOLEY has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry and Hee Haw, has performed for five US Presidents and the Prince of Wales and has worked with such notables as Bill Monroe, Jean Ritchie, Mac Wiseman, Rose Maddox and toured extensively with The Dillards and Bluegrass Alliance. In 2018, he taught at Bela Fleck’s inaugural banjo camp, where Bela dubbed him a “banjo master.” Steve’s work has earned 5 Grammy nominations and plenty of other accolades, but he lives a quiet life on his houseboat on the banks of the Ohio River.
After producing Brigid's latest solo release, Steve got talked into touring with her -- and it turns out they make quite a pair on stage. A duo album is almost finished; look out for it this summer.
