Kathleen Healy CD Release Concert
After over 2 years in the studio, we are pleased to announce that Kathleen Healy's CD entitled Spark is complete. Please join Kathleen and the talented musicians who collaborated with her on this project as we celebrate its release at the Harwich Junior Theatre, 105 Division Street, West Harwich, MA 02671 at 8:00 p.m.
Kathleen is a hard-working musician & songwriter living on Cape Cod. Kathleen writes from the heart and her honest lyrics and often poignant subject matter lend themselves to the unique quality of her voice. She admits to being a live music junkie but is currently not seeking treatment for her addiction.
She hosts weekly open mic nights at local venues and thoroughly enjoys supporting the live music scene on Cape Cod and collaborating with other local musicians. Kathleen has established a monthly singer/songwriter circle which has been visited by many of the Cape's established and upcoming original artists. She created the circle as a safe place for musicians to come and share new songs and works in progress and to give and get feedback from their peers. Many of the regulars to the circle describe the monthly gathering as "New Song Monday" and have told Kathleen it has been a great motivating tool in getting them to write new material.
Kathleen has appeared both as a solo performer and as a member of a folk quartet. She released her first CD entitled Crossing Lines in 2010 which contains a mix of original & cover tunes and was recorded live at O'Shea's Olde Inne in West Dennis. She also collaborated with visual artist Moira Swiatkowski in 2010 to publish her children's song entitled Clouds as an illustrated book and 12-song CD.
The new cd tracks feature the fine musicianship of the following players:
Kathleen Healy Lead Vocals, Guitar
Bill Kwaak Drums
Roe Osborn Bass
Randy Patterson Lead Guitar & Mandolin
Doreen LaFranchise Harmony
Meagan Perry Harmony
Rick Perry Harmony
Todd Nickerson Harmonica
Lisa Gross Cello

Due to Roe Osborn's high demand as a bass player, he will be unable to attend the release party. Sitting in for Roe on June 27th will be Matt Credit on upright bass.
Also joining in the fun on June 27 will be Frank Consiglio on Mandolin.
From Kathleen: "Heartfelt thanks to my incredible community of support. To my husband Bill for almost never complaining about the countless hours spent away from our family while pursuing this dream. To my three amazing boys for their boundless energy. To my parents, Marion & Seamus Healy, for instilling a love of live music in me at an early age. To all the players Bill, Roe, Randy, Doreen, Meagan, Todd, Lisa, Brad, & Rick for donating their time and energy and for making this project a success. To Tom for his patience, creative input, magic touch, and discerning ear. To Amy for going to great lengths to get the perfect shot on a cold November morning. To Moira for lending her critical eye and artistic talent to the design of this CD jacket. To all who inspired these songs The Extended Healy Family, The Kwaak Family, the Bookclub Gals, The Philly Contingency, The Gang at O'Shea's, The Beach Plums, Growing up on the Cape, & last but never least, to all of the Open Mic'ers who sing along to my original songs from the cheap seats it makes my heart soar every time. My wish is that these songs will spark something in the soul of the listener, as creating and singing them has done for me. Enjoy!"
We hope to see you there!
