Checking out Kyle Carey and her album "Monongah"

A review will follow shortly on this great album by Kyle Carey.  It has taken us a while but as they say all good things come to those that wait.  While you are waiting check out the video and audio below.

It has been produced by acclaimed contemporary Irish trad guitarist Donogh Hennessy (Lùnasa, Lumiere, Sharon Shannon Band), and the album  takes us on a journey through Appalachia, Cape Breton, and Scotland, and includes an award winning title track.

It features a strong line up of Irish talent including Pauline Scanlon (Lumiere) and Aoife Clancy (Cherish the Ladies) on harmony vocals, Cape Breton fiddler Rosie MacKenzie (The Cottars), Brendan O' Sullivan (Gràda), old-time fiddler Cleek Schrey, Appalachian expert John Kirk (Quickstep) on mandolin and banjo, and Trevor Hutchinson (The Waterboys, Lùnasa) on double bass.

To quote her own bio "The ingredients of Kyle Carey’s music include the songs of the American Folk Anthology, influences of Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton traditional music, and the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill. It is best described by Jeremy Searle of R2 Magazine: “Finally released in Europe after and album launch in the US and Canada, the debut album from Alaska born and extensively traveled Kyle Carey is, quite simply, a delight. Drawing from both the American and British folk traditions, the songs, including some very fine originals, are beautifully crafted and performed."
