Kyle Carey

The Art of Forgetting


CD (pre-order)

Expected Release: 26th Jan 2018


The third full-length album from trans-Atlantic recording artist Kyle Carey, whose synthesis of the Celtic, Americana and Appalachian traditions makes for her own unique brand of ‘Gaelic Americana’ music.

‘The Art of Forgetting’ was recorded in Louisiana, produced by Dirk Powell and includes roots luminaries such as Rhiannon Giddens, John McCusker and Mike McGoldrick as special guests. Kyle Carey weaves together resonant threads of Celtic and American roots music into a rich tapestry of acoustic storytelling. Produced by four-time Grammy winner Dirk Powell. Featuring all-star international cast of musicians including Rhiannon Giddens on backing vocals, John McCusker on fiddle and Mike McGoldrick on flute. Includes two traditional Gaelic songs, highlighting Kyle Carey’s fluency in the Gaelic language of her ancestors. She writes and performs in her own unique style of Gaelic Americana. Beautifully crafted lyrics drawn from both personal experience as well as Appalachian folktale, Dustbowl narrative and Greek mythology. Elements of bluegrass, gospel, Appalachian ballads and fiddle tunes can all be heard in the Americana infused tracks. She creates a new sort of American folk music which continues to cross boundaries and forge alliances. An album which owes its special qualities to Carey’s lifelong study of Gaelic music, language and culture. Kyle’s previous two albums North Star and Monongah received critical acclaim and press from both sides of the Atlantic.
