The Friends of Macedon Public Library have provided the funds to allow us to bring to the Macedon Library a Celtic singer popular on both shores of the Atlantic. Having toured for five years back and forth across the Atlantic many times, Kyle Carey is a unique and innovative artist not to be missed.
Kyle Carey’s unique trans-Atlantic fusion of music includes influences from the American folk songbook, the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill, and the traditional music of Ireland, Cape Breton and Scotland. The results are well described by Jeremy Searle of R2 Magazine: “Kyle Carey is, quite simply, a delight. Drawing from both the American and British folk traditions, her songs, including some very fine originals, are beautifully crafted and performed. She’s assured, confident, charming and irresistible.”
Songlines magazine says of Carey: “U.S. born singer-songwriter Kyle Carey has a pleasing voice, which she wields with deft assuredness and gentle charm. Her music, a hybrid form that she describes as Gaelic Americana, owes its special qualities to Carey’s life-long study of Scottish Gaelic music, language and culture.”
There is no charge for this concert, and no need to register—just join us on the 24th for a very special musical evening!
