Traditional Celtic musicians Kindred is the husband and wife team of David and Felicia Meyer. Schooled in theatre and classical music as well as folk and popular song, they bring a compelling stage presence to their wide ranging repertoire capturing the hearts of audiences throughout the United States and Canada. With Felicia Meyer’s incredible voice and guitar, and Dave Meyer’s dynamic and versatile cello playing, Kindred brings to life both old and new music in the Celtic tradition.
With a rare blending of voice, cello, guitars, and percussion, Kindred draw their music from the Irish poets, pubs, and county fairs; from the Scottish Highlands, Atlantic Canada, and the Appalachian crannies of the American southeast. The band’s CD offers a sample of the beauty of their music which is fast gaining popularity and increasing airplay.
A live performance by Kindred captivates the audience with beautiful ballads, heartfelt emotional singing, and virtuoso playing. Driving fiddle tunes played on the cello make them unique on the Celtic scene. Kindred performances include a healthy dose of humor including the festival favorite “Half a Hundred Nuns” song based on a true story. The band is known for their engaging, charismatic personalities and funny banter. Kindred makes the audience part of the performance, rousing their emotions to standing ovations.
The band has performed sold out concerts for the Lancaster (NY) Opera House and the Fredonia (NY) Opera House. Other performances include the Hochstein School of Music with Sampler records, the Smith Opera House in Geneva, NY, the Hornell Arts Council Concert series, and Bethlehem, PA’s Musikfest.
