During this last week of the year, I'll be doing a series of posts on some of the talented people in my family. Today, we start off with Kevin Callahan. Take a look at his website and learn about this highly respected composer/musician.

From Kevin's website:

While Kevin holds a BA in English literature from Dartmouth College, he pursued harmony, composition and orchestration throughout his undergraduate career. Upon graduating, he returned to his hometown of Boston for private study with Thomas McGah, head of the composition department at Berklee College of Music, and jazz studies with Mitch Coodley and Mick Goodrick. Kevin moved to Seattle in 1983 where studied classical guitar with Gary Bissiri.
At home in a variety of music genres, Kevin has performed or recorded with groups ranging from the Seattle Symphony to the Seattle Guitar Quartet, Dave Koz, Arnold McCuller of the James Taylor band, Greg Adams of Tower of Power, Roger Fisher of Heart, Rita Coolidge, and the peerless Assad Brothers.
