Celtic roots music/US
Kalos is Eric McDonald, Ryan McKasson, and Jeremiah McLane, masters of tradition who explore both the dark corners and the joyful exuberance of Celtic, Breton, and American musical traditions. Eric studied jazz and bluegrass mandolin at the Berklee College of Music before finding his way to DADGAD (a.k.a. Celtic tuned) guitar; Ryan was one of the youngest winners of the US National Scottish Fiddle Championship; Jeremiah, in addi- tion to being raised with Scottish roots, has studied Indonesian Gamelan, West African drumming, and the music of minimalist composers Steve Reich and Philip Glass. “This trio really shows how masterful musicians listen and play off each other” (Hearth Music). Their music is meant to be shared, and live performance is their forte.
