Biography

Kitty’s Return are: Karen Light and Ray Caldwell. Karen Light plays Concertina and Tin Whistle. Ray Caldwell plays, Uilleann Pipes, Tin Whistles, Cittern, Guitar, Small Pipes, Bodhran and Synthesizer.
Our CD “Kitty’s Return” was made in memory and appreciation of the late Chris Langan and to fulfill his desire that his music be made available to others for their consideration and enjoyment. We have recorded many of his compositions, added some of his favourite tunes and a couple of new compositions for good measure. This was recorded in Ray’s basement studio and is certainly not a professional recording. We’re sure Chris would forgive the imperfections and appreciate our limitations. The main idea was to get the music recorded so people can learn the tunes by ear. Karen Light joined North American Comhaltas (Irish Music Society) in 1978. She was a friend of Chris Langan and enjoyed many hours of sharing tunes and tea. In 1981, she went to Ireland to study the whistle with Mary Bergin at the Willie Clancy School . Shortly after that, Karen began teaching group whistle lessons before the bi-weekly Comhaltas sessions at the Tranzac. She is now playing concertina as well and continues to teach students in traditional Irish music. Karen was a member of the Toronto band Jigsaw and continues to play regularly at Comhaltis events and various sessions in the city. As a school teacher, she is having great success with her 6, 7 and 8 year old whistle students.
