o Kathy Crinion
Kathy Crinion is a singer/songwriter/children’s author from Trim Co Meath. Ireland. Having worked as singer in bands for many years and even performing for HRH Princess Margaret along her varied career path, she is very proud to showcase her album Ups Downs and Merry-go-rounds……….
Kathy has been working with some well known names to produce what can only be described as a rollercoaster of a debut album. Although she has written most of the tracks for this album she has co-written a track called "Wouldn't change a thing" with one of Irelands best known music makers, Charlie McGettigan. The album also sees the writing skills of Don Baker and Gerry Tully both highly regarded musicians in their own right. The album is titled "Ups, Downs & Merry-Go-Rounds" and it hosts a myriad of fine musicians, Ken Gillick, also from Trim, who has worked with most of Irelands top names, co-arranged many of the tracks and features on guitar and keyboard. Kathy also sings a duet with country singer Trevor Smith on a track called "Too Close" written by Frank Foley. It features Kane' Rourke on Fiddle. Kathy's own music seems to cross many genres and her lyrics read like short stories, which is probably partly due to the fact that she is a published author. Other musicians on the album are Martin Quinn on Bass, Guitars, Keyboards & backing vocals, Andrew Quinn on Drums, John Byrne on Saxophone & Simon Fagan on Trumpet. Recorded in JAM Studios Kells Co Meath and Produced and Engineered by Martin Quinn.
