Video interview: Brigid Kaelin talks about her last Louisville show at Monkey Wrench this Friday ahead of upcoming move to Edinburgh, Scotland [Music]

Brigid Kaelin is doing it again. Yep, the little red-headed darling songstress from Louisville’s original music scene is making her annual pilgrimage across the pond to Scotland. But this time for more of an extended stay while her husband attends graduate school in Scotland’s capital of Edinburgh.

She was anxious to sit down and explain the rationale behind the decision and was noticeably excited about the trip which will take her away from Louisville for more than a year.

With much glee, Kaelin wasn't shy about declaring how much better the pay is for musicians in Europe.



“It’s good that you’re getting paid over there. They pay musicians in Europe. It’s the strangest thing. Imagine that. Artists getting paid.” she says with a cutesy touch of well-placed sarcasm while sitting in a yoga-like position on her basement keyboard bench.



She’s content with her position in music and in life. Her smile never dissipates, even while discussing one of Louisville's moot points of being a musician and trying to get paid. 

It's nice but not necessary with her. She's a lover of the art of creating music and playing with different variations of expression.

Kaelin will be joined onstage starting at 7:00 pm with a host and variety of different musicians that she’s played with over the years. Expect appearances with Peter Searcy, Steve Cooley, Leigh Ann Yost, Danny Flanigan, the Billy Goat Strut Revue and Katy Krekel (daughter of the late Tim Krekel).

"It should be fun. Lot’s of special guests. It’s all the people I’ve played with over the years."

About Jason Ashcraft
Jason is a life-long Louisville native who grew up in the Highlands, and now resides in an undisclosed fortified location somewhere in Louisville. He's followed Louisville's rock music scene for almost 10 years, first as a concert promoter, then an artist manager, and now a music critic and reviewer. He's one crazy Jarhead who'll literally publish anything his mind conceives on impulse, so don't always expect him to follow the traditional laws of journalism. He has intent of reviving Hunter S. Thompson's “gonzo journalism” if only his editors will allow it...which they don't usually. Head over to LouisvilleScuttlebutt.com for more published rhetoric.
