“Brigid Kaelin brings a new meaning to the word entertainment.” -Leith Folk Club

“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)

Kentucky-born Brigid Kaelin is a Renaissance woman, excelling as a storyteller, musician, writer and illustrator. Classically-trained on several instruments, she’s equally at ease at a Nashville session as she is entertaining crowds in random pubs.

A singer, storyteller, author, and multi-instrumentalist who has appeared on BBC, NPR and received many “Best Singer-Songwriter” awards in Louisville. With 7 albums/EPs of original music, she’s toured the world with her entertaining, upbeat, and poignant live show. The addition of Steve Cooley lifts her originals, making the show reminiscent of old-time variety hours.

Also a sought-after sidewoman, Brigid has performed with artists ranging from Nick Keir and Adam Holmes to Elvis Costello, usually on musical saw or accordion..
