Brigid Kaelin

Multi-instrumentalist Brigid Kaelin has been a guest on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion, the BBC, has traveled the world doing speaking engagements as well as music performances. She’s played accordion, musical saw and sung with Elvis Costello many times, tours Europe at least once a year, yet remains a staple performer  in Louisville, where she has received multiple "Best Singer/Songwriter" awards. Her new album, Those Who Drift Away, was produced by Grammy-nominated Steve Cooley (The Dillards, Bill Monroe) and is an upbeat, rollicking, bluegrass-infused folk record, "peppered with witty wordcraft." Brigid writes the popular blog, The Red Accordion Diaries, where she overshares her adventures in music, travel, whisky and motherhood. She recently turned down a dream role in a national-touring Broadway show in order to care for her dying mother and wouldn't change a thing about that.
