Multi-instrumentalist Brigid Kaelin has been a guest on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion, the BBC, has traveled the world for her music, art, writing, and storytelling. She’s played accordion, piano, musical saw and sung with Elvis Costello on multiple continents, tours Europe at least once a year, yet remains a staple in Louisville, where she has received several "Best Singer/Songwriter" awards. Her latest single, "Kentucky With You," is featured on the new Kentucky Proud advertising campaign, and she's thrilled to have written a new song for her home state.
In addition to her music, Brigid's writing has been published in Salon, ScaryMommy, Kveller, LEO, Louisville Magazine, and many blogs. A true Renaissance woman, Brigid is also an artist, focused on architectural paintings. Her works hang all over America, as well as a government building in Switzerland. She also recently turned down a dream role in a Broadway show in order to care for her dying parents ... and wouldn't change a thing about that.
As you can see, focusing is not her forte, but anything in the arts is. And Brigid will do pretty much anything if there's a transatlantic plane ticket involved.
