Kieran Kane and Rayna Gellert are releasing a new CD, When the Sun Goes Down, March 20, 2019. This follow-up to their acclaimed debut, The Ledges was recorded live at home and captures the duo's grounded, restrained playing and singing with a shimmering intimacy.

With themes ranging from the achingly personal to the pointedly political, these new songs from Kane and Gellert illustrate their movement toward a more thorough synthesis of their musical backgrounds. Guitar, fiddle, banjo, and octave mandolin in combination with their deeply affecting vocal blend are employed in ways both evocative and modern. Find out more at


Kieran Kane and Rayna Gellert's first CD, The Ledges, came out February 16, 2018! Recorded at Kieran's upstate New York cabin's bunkhouse, with fiddles, banjos, guitars, Kieran's famed octave mandolin, five microphones, it isn't like anything else you'll hear this year, yet it is reminiscent of so much that we treasure in American roots music. It is the embodiment of soulful musicality. Learn more about the duo at

Kieran Kane has a new EP out! His first solo release since 2009, Unguarded Moments is exactly what the title implies--thoughts expressed when you're alone, or with your lover or closest friend.

This intimate, personal recording strips the music to its most basic, emotional form. The lyrics form the innermost thoughts of someone who has experienced the ups and downs of life and still comes out with the believe that "Everything's going to be all right, everything's going to be fine."
