With their fifth album, Banshee in the Kitchen invites the world to a fun, intimate evening of live music preserved in this November 2007 recording. A lively audience packed the welcoming venue at Painted Sky Studio in Cambria, California, a coastal town. The CD, like the concert, features the usual array of new Banshee material, along with several old favorites from their catalog.
Banshee in the Kitchen has been touring and recording since 2001. Their first four albums are If We Were Us (2002) and Catching the Mooncoin (2003), Even Hotter Water (2005), and Invite the Light: World Music for Winter (2006). Their recordings and live performances have been featured on Echoes (PRI) as well as other public and internet-enabled radio shows, and continue to get regular play in Ireland, Europe, Australia, and across the U.S.
Banshee in the Kitchen is: national hammered dulcimer champion Brenda Hunter (fiddle, hammered dulcimer, vocals), Jill Egland (flute, accordion, whistle, bodhran, vocals) and Mary Tulin (six- and twelve-string guitar, bouzouki, vocals).
