Kilmaley, a Chicago-based trio, performs arrangements of traditional tunes on uilleann pipes, fiddle, guitar, and bouzouki. Karen (fiddle) and Patrick (uilleann pipes) Cannady began playing together in 2001. Their music is arresting, spare and rhythmic, employing the full sonic palettes of both instruments. They draw inspiration from the music brought to Chicago by Irish immigrants as well as modern masters like Martin Hayes and Mick O’Brien. They are frequent performers at festivals around the country. Donald Terao is a lifelong musician and exponent of the guitar in many genres, but enjoys accompanying Irish traditional music on guitar and bouzouki especially. He has studied traditional music with Chicago’s own John Williams and with famous accompanists John Doyle and Daithi Sproule.
