What can you say about a pianist whose first favorite sound was made by marbles rolling in an aluminum dishpan?
In addition to practicing scales and classical repertory, Kathleen Ryan played snare drum in a marching band; wrote and performed singing telegrams; improvised music for avant garde dancers; composed a folk rock opera based on the Tristan and Isolde legend; and sang and danced in a hippie liturgical drama. Kathleen is inspired by folk songs of the British Isles; the soulful music of blues masters Robert Johnson and John Lee Hooker; American composers Gershwin, Hammerstein, and Copland; a cappella gospel music; Mozart and Schubert, of course; and the polyrhythmic coin boxes on the Providence, Rhode Island buses.
Hi Energy Holiday is Kathleen''s boogie woogie riff on the classic American holiday songs. Reggae makes a brief & understated appearance too, and a good time is had by all!
