(This Session was originally published in March, 2019.)
In 2017, we got to sit down in the Folk Alley studios with Kieran Kane and Rayna Gellert. It was right before the release of their first collaboration, The Ledges, and the pair were still, as they say, “trying to figure things out.” Two years after the session, the duo invited us and our friends from Beehive Productions to meet up at their cozy lake-side cabin in the Adirondacks in New York to talk about their second collaboration, 2019’s When the Sun Goes Down. The cabin isn’t just any cabin; it’s a place for fishing, swimming, relaxing, and it’s also the place where they do most of their writing. In addition, the cabin is where Kane and Gellert go to avoid what they refer to as “red light syndrome.” The pair explained what that means and shared some additional insights into the making of When the Sun Goes Down during their exclusive Folk Alley session.
