“With a superb guitarist and a rhythm section that is second to none, that leaves Bridget Kelly on vocals. This woman has a set of pipes that just won’t quit. Her vocal range runs from fierce as a mama lion to sultry and passionate as a schoolgirl who has found her first love. The band overall has a deep love for the blues that is evident in every note they play. Add to that the fact that they play what they know and you have a winning combination. Then you have Bridget’s striking beauty, which, theoretically should not be an issue but we all know better. After all is said and done, the Bridget Kelly band has everything a person might look for in a band. They have a timeless quality, sounding like something we grew up listening to our entire lives. 2014’s Forever In Blues is a winner, hands down. –Bill Wilson”
