Kray is a superb folk muisician all the way from Alaska with an impressive collection of varied tunes that he believes should be available to you without cost - as he says, music without borders, music without cost. We are very proud therefore to play his track I'll Meet You in Ireland in our Irish Mythological Cycle Summary, SP25b. His epic version of the Wild Hunt, The Shores of Wales, can be found in our Samhain Holiday Special for 2011, SP26.
Kray Van Kirk is an Alaskan singer-songwriter, delivering performances that the Borderline Folk Club in New York called "...what every singer-songwriter should aspire to." His warm and intimate concerts on six- and twelve-string guitar have received critical praise and enthusiastic receptions from the house concert circuit to festivals and larger stages. At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where many shows receive only a handful of audience members due to the sheer volume of available performances, his room was sold out, leaving some folks sitting on the stairs and a Fringe reviewer to write "the Alaskan singer-songwriter, in his Edinburgh debut, was not the reason I arrived early, but certainly why I stayed late".
Living without road access in Alaska might not seem the best way to be a touring musician, but that's where he makes his home with his daughter, one cat, and far too many books to fit into one room (along with the occasional bear sitting in the front seat of his car). He is on the road as much as possible, being a single parent, but even when he is at home, all of his songs are freely available here on this site, ready to march their way across the world like little digital penguins, leaving no footprints in the snow.
Kray has 4 albums available.
