Kitty Kelly is a second generation Irish American whose grandparents came from Donegal and Galway. Her love for all things Irish and in particular Irish music, song and dance was nurtured from her time spent at her grandparents’ respective Irish resorts in East Durham, New York, the small hamlet affectionately known as the 33rd County.
Kitty sang professionally with several Irish bands before forming her own band nine years ago. In 2008 her first CD “Catskill Fever” was released. The CD features well-known Irish musicians Joanie Madden, John Nolan, Buddy Connolly, Jerry O’Sullivan, Eamonn O’Rourke, Gabriel Donohue and many others including her brothers, father, cousin and uncle and has garnered favorable reviews from all who have heard it. Kitty is currently working on her next CD.
Kitty and her full 5-6 piece piece band play Festivals, Dances, Clubs, Concerts and Weddings throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and Ohio. They are noted for their high energy, impressive instrumentation, stand out vocals and harmonies.
