Brigid Kaelin has toured the world playing her original alt-country-cabaret music. An accomplished instrumentalist, she plays several instruments, has been a musical guest on NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” and has played accordion, musical saw and sung backup for Elvis Costello on two continents. She’s a fierce yodeler, a mother of two wee boys, and a lover of bad jokes and good whisky. Brigid’s new album is due out this spring and was produced by Steve Cooley.
Steve Cooley grew up in Louisville, and has been a fixture on the regional and national bluegrass scene since the 1970s. He toured extensively in North America, Western Europe and Japan with such well-known bands as the Bluegrass Alliance, the Cumberlands, the Goins Brothers, the Katie Laur Band, and the Dillards. He has also worked with such notables as Jean Ritchie, Hazel Dickens, Vassar Clements, Jerry Reed, Mac Wiseman, Rose Maddox, Michael Cleveland, and Art Stamper.
