LIVE: Kyle Carey @ the National Museum of Dance, 9/30/18
Review and photographs by Andrzej Pilarczyk
A little over a decade ago Kyle Carey entered the Skidmore College community as a student. From the onset, she was a bright and shining light who became an ambassador of Irish music and culture by starting an Celtic club on campus. During those years, she also produced concerts – including the seminal Mick Maloney – that educated and entertained with the arts of Ireland and Scotland.
Carey was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, landing in Nova Scotia, then Ireland and later to Scotland. Throughout this time, this amazing lady studied the Celtic cultures of all these places and even learned to speak and sing in Gaelic.
She went onto work with some on the most important engineers and producers, including Séamus Egan of Solas, who has also helmed albums for Antje Duvekot, Karan Casey and fiddler Liz Carroll.
At the National Museum of Dance’s Riggi Theater in Saratoga Springs, she was joined by cellist Sera Smolen for a two-set night of what she calls Gaelic Americana featuring her original music and a few traditional tunes.
A fabulous night for all who attended…
