HullabaLOU preview: Brigid Kaelin [Music]

Print
Earlier this spring, Brigid Kaelin toured the UK, but on Saturday July 24, you can see her once again home in Louisville as she plays the HullabaLOU music festival at Churchill Downs. Music fans familiar with the local music scene know Kaelin well. In fact, a couple years ago, she landed at Number 33 in WFPK's "Greatest Artists of All Time Countdown." Music fans outside of town, may know her from the USA Network's Nashville Star, where she was a finalist in 2007.

Accomplished at the accordion, piano, guitar, and musical saw, Kaelin has played with an impressive roster of artists, including Elvis Costello & the Imposters, Seven Mary Three, Maceo Parker, Shannon Lawson, Love Jones, Peter Searcy, Bob Schneider, and Patty Loveless. But she has also released two fine solo albums, 2006's Secrets and West 28th Street in 2008.

Her songwriting is often humorous and always smart, and her songs are played with excellent musicianship; maybe think of her as the Americana female version of Barenaked Ladies. But her music is not strictly a country variety or even just Americana. For example, Secrets and Ballad of Motorcycle Joe are serious, piano-based pop songs while Future Mr. Used-to-Be and Blue Driedel No. 9 are funny and infectious, well, ditties.

And if all of this wasn't enough, she's a fan of the metric system and can yodel with the best of them.

Kaelin will be performing Saturday July 24 on the Budweiser stage at 1:45.
