Kyle Carey performs a unique fusion of Appalachian and Celtic music she likes to call ‘Gaelic Americana’. Having learned Scottish Gaelic to the point of fluency–Kyle’s music is an expression and exploration of the deep connection between Appalachia’s Celtic roots. Many critics have likened her to being a mix of Loreena McKennitt and Alison Krauss.
Kyle has released two full-length albums, and her third The Art of Forgetting (which was recorded in Louisiana and produced by Dirk Powell) features folks like Rhiannon Giddens, John McCusker and Mike McGoldrick. The album was released last January on the World Music Network’s Riverboat Records out of London–who through Redeye in the US–charted at #9 on Billboard’s Heatseeker’s Northeast Chart. In December, PopMatters named the album one of the ’20 Best Folk Albums of 2018’
