The Pattern is a poem that Kim wrote after a her first trip to Ireland and hearing about the myths and legends of the Women knitting a pattern in her husband and sons sweaters to identify them if they were lost at sea and then recovered later. We are very proud to include the musical version of The Pattern in our Samhain 2009 Holiday Special, SP15.
Ken and Kim met in Phoenix, Arizona. Ken was the booking agent for a local acoustic performance venue, and Kim had to audition for him to perform there! Well, needless to say, the audition went well, she got the job. A year later, they moved to Montana and immediatly began performing and touring their new mixture of music.
Since that beginning, they have concentrated on providing excellent educational and cultural programs, residencies, lyceums and workshops, along side energetic audience friendly concerts. A Willson & McKee performance is not really a performance, but a two-way journey… between past and present… between audience and artists...
Willson & McKee have 7 albums available.
