25th Annual Healing Garden Benefit Concert

Irene Kelley
Nashville, Tennessee
Songwriter, Vocals, Guitar
A Pennsylvania coal miner’s granddaughter, IRENE KELLEY went from singing lead with the Bluegrass band Redwing to Nashville and a pair of major label singles. Several albums and chart-topping singles later, Irene continues to release music of import featuring her signature mix of Bluegrass, Country and Americana. Irene’s songwriting has drawn much deserved attention and her pure and lonesome vocal prowess has tugged at the heartstrings of music lovers for years, making her one of traditional music’s most beloved musical story-tellers. Her most recent full-length album — “Benny’s TV Repair” — garnered five #1 songs on the Bluegrass Today charts and continues to receive coast-to-cast 24/7 airplay on Sirius/XM. 
On October 19, 2021, Irene Kelley released her NEW rollicking Appalachian-influenced "CAROLINA SPECIAL" (IRK Records) to radio stations worldwide.

Dan McCorison cut his teeth in the thriving folk music scene of his hometown, Denver Colorado. As a member of the Boulder Colorado band, Dusty Drapes and the Dusters, he shared the stage with many great artists including Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Flatt and Scruggs and Linda Ronstadt. It wasn’t long before Chris Hillman of The Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers took notice of Dan’s talents and arranged for him to be signed to MCA Records. Chris produced the resulting highly acclaimed album featuring Emmylou Harris' Hot Band. Dan's trail finally led him to Nashville enabling him to write and record with some of the finest writers and musicians in country music. He has recorded five solo albums and appeared on several Maranatha! Records compilations. His most recent album, “Me and Les” was named Best Traditional Western Album of the Year by the International Western Music Association for 2021 where he also won Songwriter of the Year. His previous album, “Montana Moon”, won Best Western Album of the Year for 2018 from the Academy of Western Artists.

Dan is currently living with his wife, June and their trusty dog, Daisy in Arizona. He is a proud member of the International Western Music Association and the Pro Cowboy Country Artists Association. 

Kylie Harris
Kylie Harris began singing and playing guitar at 13 years of age.
After releasing two albums and receiving widespread acclaim in her native New Zealand, the accomplished singer, writer and instrumentalist decided to bring her talent to Nashville. First-time listeners and longtime fans alike are drawn in by her honest and soulful delivery, which has drawn comparisons to Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Linda Ronstadt, Roseanne Cash and the great Patsy Cline.

At 17, Kylie became the youngest-ever winner of the overall Gold Guitar Award. This high-profile win eventually lead to a recording contract with BMG. Her debut album, “Let It Be Love”, was a critical and commercial success, earning her “Country Album of the Year” and the “Rising Star” award at New Zealand’s Music & Entertainment Awards. Her second album, “Fancy”, also took top album honors at those same awards two years later. This success and recognition lead her to tour throughout New Zealand and Australia as the opening act for Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs, The Irish Rovers and Charley Pride, whom she also supported here in the states.

In 2001, her musical abilities and personable manner caught the attention of the television network, Great American Country (GAC). They invited her to host her own daily show called “The Edge of Country,” a program that caters to all fans of Americana/Roots music; it also reaches over 42 million homes in North America to this day.
