Long Time Courting and Kyle Carey
Boston-based band Long Time Courting offers an extraordinary blend of neo-traditional Celtic Roots music. Exquisite vocal harmonies combine with the formidable instrumental prowess of Sarah Blair (fiddle), Valerie Thompson (cello), Shannon Heaton (flute), and Liz Simmons (guitar) to create music that is both playful and richly satisfying.

"Enchanting vocals, top-rank musicianship, and well-conceived, intelligent arrangements."
Boston Irish Reporter

"An exceptionally good album... one of the best new groups playing in the Celtic genre." Times Argus

The ingredients of KYLE CAREY's music include the songs of the American Folk Anthology, influences of Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton traditional music, and the Appalachian poetry of Louise McNeill. It is best described by Jeremy Searle of R2 Magazine: "...quite simply, a delight. Drawing from both the American and British folk traditions, the songs, including some very fine originals, are beautifully crafted and performed."

"Carey has talent to burn as a songwriter, and a mature, clear voice in which to deliver her stories." -World Music Central

"An alluring voice, superb playing and haunting lyrics to hook any casual listener, 'Monongah' is an album that must be experienced." -Irish Music Magazine
