Kalos is made up of three innovative interpreters and composers of Celtic roots music: Eric McDonald (guitar, mandolin, lead vocals), Ryan McKasson (fiddle, viola, vocals) and Jeremiah McLane (accordion, piano, vocals). All three are long-standing touring artists, who as part of their development, learned from masters of traditional music (Ryan with Alasdair Fraser, Eric with John McGann, Jeremiah with Jimmy Keane). Their individual artistry springs from these strong traditional roots; as a trio they move beyond this foundation, creating music that is compelling enough to transcend boundaries and appeal to music lovers of all stripes.

While much of Kalos’ material is rooted in traditional forms, this does not limit the trio’s scope. Collective imagination is the primary expression in its music. Kalos’ new album, Headland, does not shy away from anything in favor of a certain direction. Rather, it is a body of music that, even if sometimes in the abstract, creates an emotional narrative. The name Headland, which refers to a point where land meets the sea, is representative of the exploratory space Kalos seeks in its arrangements and live performances. All of the various elements at play gather together into a collective mood, creating an environment of Kalos’ design and a memorable live music experience. As a critic for the UK’s Folkwords wrote: “There’s a certain spontaneity at work as the three musicians alternately contest and duel, combine and coalesce to bring their talents together.”
