One of the more popular solo artists to hit Louisville in the past decade is doing what many have done before her — leaving Louisville for a bigger city. But it’s not Nashville or Austin, the obvious choices; no, she’s moving to Edinburgh, Scotland. The multi-talented musician and songwriter has developed a following in the earlier, less successful version of the U.S. known as the U.K., and her husband is entering a master’s program there. The pair plan to return, but after spending all that time mastering a Paltrow-esque accent, why bother? To bid Louisville adieu, Kaelin has assembled an evening with friends that encompasses some of her many abilities — country, folk, cabaret, ragtime and, hopefully, her rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” played on a saw. We hope she has fun but returns soon. —Peter Berkowitz
