Kate Callahan & Friends is a years-long collaboration between Kate, and musicians Cynthia Wolcott and Michelle Begley. Their sound is sublime three-part harmony woven through Kate’s original songs and folk-driven covers of Crosby, Stills & Nash, Adele, The Wailin’ Jenny’s and Leonard Cohen. Kate Callahan & Friends have performed together for the last 7 years refining their process of arranging songs. Their most acclaimed arrangement to date is of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Born from a harmonic idea in guest contributor Atticus Kelly’s head, the group fleshed out a haunting rendition of the popular ballad. WNPR radio personality and writer, Colin McEnroe wrote about the group’s Hartfolk Festival performance “…with Begley and Wolcott flanking [Kate]…there was a giant, multi-pronged Emersonian celestial tuning fork on stage…it put light in one’s heart. And oh! They did a remarkable arrangement of “Hallelujah.” An award-winning presence on the Connecticut music scene, Callahan served two years as Connecticut’s State Troubadour, taking special interest in the state’s inmate population. She created a program called Affirming Voice, a vocal empowerment experience for women inmates at York Correctional Institution. Kate Callahan & Friends are looking for a new band name and will soon solicit audiences and social networks for ideas.
