Listen: Kevin McKrell Chats From Home - In Quarantine
One of the great things about living in the Local 518? Kevin McKrell is one of our neighbors. For years, I always thought Kevin was a mythical figure. I didn't know he actually existed. But then...
And when you meet one of your heroes only to find out he is just as down to earth as can be, it's a great thing.
Kevin McKrell is one of the area's most famous exports. People around the world know The McKrells, Donnybrook Fair, and just Kevin on a barstool with his guitar. However you get to see Kevin play, it's always entertaining. His self-deprecating humor is certainly charming. And the stories he tells, and those songs... Yea, we are very lucky folk to have him as a neighbor.
His latest album is Kevin solo. It's called "In Quarantine." The record captures the essence of Kevin, at onece touching and serious and a bit funny with a wry grin. We visit from my home to his, and here is the result.
