Kyle will be joined by Boston-based fiddler and guitarist Katie McNally and Eric McDonald. Katie McNally has grown up steeped in fiddle music. She is a former New England Scottish fiddle champion and a two time runner-up for the national title. She regularly performs in the fiddle super-group Childsplay, along with some of the nation’s finest acoustic musicians. Eric is known for his tasteful playing on both the mandolin and guitar. He is an in-demand accompanist who tours regularly with the Scottish/American band Cantrip and New England fiddler Brendan Carey-Block.
The ingredients of Kyle Carey’s music include the songs of the American Folk Anthology, the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill, and the traditional music of Ireland and Scotland. Kyle’s debut album Monongah, produced by former Lùnasa guitarist Donogh Hennessy, rose to number eight this past summer on the Folk DJ charts, landing on a number of ‘Best of 2011’ lists by year’s end. Her original songs draw heavily from the American folk tradition, while her fluency in Scottish Gaelic makes for her own brand of ‘Gaelic Americana’ music.
