BRIGID KAELIN first played the musical saw as an 8-year-old cello student, when her dad casually asked if she could bow a saw. She later came to be obsessed with the "instrument" as a college sophomore, when her roommate brought a musical saw to NYU for the year. Her roommate's brother was known saw legend and blues guitarist, Guy Forsyth. He gave her some tips, and Brigid and has been playing professionally since then. It took her a long time before she realized that not just any saw player can make the specific notes desired and play accurate melodies; Brigid can do both and more.
Available for session work in Nashville and Louisville.
