Composer, artist, writer, and recent breast cancer survivor BRIGID KAELIN has played accordion, musical saw and sung with musical heroes like Cowboy Jack Clement and Elvis Costello and has performed on the BBC, A Prairie Home Companion, Nashville Star and more. She plays more than ten instruments, tours Europe at least once a year, yet remains a staple in the Louisville music scene. One of the world's most virtuosic musical saw players, she often records film scores or album overdubs from her home studio in Kentucky, as well as wild saw arrangements like this 30-part saw recording of "Happy Birthday" in a minor key.
As an artist, she has works hanging in homes across America, as well as government buildings in Switzerland. As a writer, she's had bylines in Salon, Kveller, ScaryMommy, and she's hard at work on several books. Brigid's blog, The Red Accordion Diaries, shares adventures in travel, whiskey, and parenthood, though she's been writing more often on her PATREON page.
2024 will bring a new album and new adventures. If you want to support indie artists, please follow them on all social media. Or hire them to play musical saw on your next album.
