Multi-instrumentalist Brigid Kaelin has been a guest on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion, was a semi-finalist on Nashville Star, has played accordion, musical saw, and sung with Elvis Costello many times, tours Europe at least once a year, yet remains a staple performer and utility player in the Louisville music scene. Her new album, Those Who Drift Away, is a "rollicking ride through folk history." Brigid also writes the blog, The Red Accordion Diaries, where she overshares her adventures in music, travel, whisky, and motherhood. Louisville, Kentucky, is home ... for now. This will be Brigid's 7th UK tour, though she has also toured there playing accordion for Adam Holmes & the Embers and Kirsty McGee and even Elvis Costello. Touring as a duo with Steve Cooley, Brigid will be in the UK in support of her 3rd full-length album, produced and recorded by Steve on his houseboat on the banks of the Ohio River.
About Steve Cooley:
Steve has toured with The Dillards, the Cumberlands, the Bluegrass Alliance, and many others (even Bill Monroe!). He's appeared on the Grand Ol' Opry and Hee Haw, has performed for five US Presidents and the Prince of Wales, and has sat in with bands ranging from Phish to Dolly Parton. Here's a recent article on Steve Cooley from Rolling Stone.
Format for 2018: Duo: 2 vocals, guitar, banjo, accordion, musical saw.

"I first heard of Brigid Kaelin from friends back in Kentucky and up in Scotland. Everything they said about her was true. She sings wonderfully, is a fine performer, has good songs, plays a number of instruments very well, and seems destined for something greater." - Sid Griffin (The Coal Porters, The Long Ryders)
