People In Profile – Tess Felder (13/1/2013)

Tess Felder was born and raised in and around Raleigh, North Carolina in the United States. Following an English degree she fell under the spell of Irish poetry, working as an intern in a publishing house and resulted (eventually) in her making her way to Galway for an MA in Journalism. This led to her arrival in Kilkenny where she remained for the last 8 years.

She’s on her way back to the States to work for the New York Times and she leaves behind many, many friends. She dropped in over the Christmas in the middle of packing to chat about her llife and to play her musical choices, all of whom have played in Kilkenny.
