Kyle Carey’s unique fusion of Gaelic Americana music comes to the Vineyard Haven library on Wednesday, Oct. 9, at 7 pm in “Gaelic Americana: Kyle Carey in Concert.” Her music reflects influences of the American Folk Anthology, the traditional music of Cape Breton, Ireland, and Scotland, and the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill. Carey has released two full-length albums, and her third, “The Art of Forgetting,” was recorded in Louisiana and produced by Dirk Powell. According to a press release from the library, PopMatters named the album one of the 20 Best Folk Albums of 2018. Join us for a special evening of music at the Katharine Cornell Theater.
