About the Artist
Cormac McCarthy is a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter and musician.
Plying his trade for 25 years, he has recorded 3 albums (2 for internationally known Green Linnet records) and will release a 4th in 2006.
A superb showman that folks around the country hail as one of the most brilliant songwriters to rise out of the contemporary folk scene, Cormac has performed from Alaska to Bermuda, playing such places as the Newport Folk Festival , Mountain Stage, Ben and Jerry?s One World, One Heart Festival and syndicated radio shows like the Folk Sampler.
Reviews of Cormac?s CDs and performances have received nothing short of rave reviews:
McCarthy is acclaimed as one of New England?s finest singer songwriters. ?I rarely issue directives but, next time he comes within 100 miles you must go hear him!? - Seth Rogovoy - special to The Boston Phoenix
Two-time nominee for the Boston Music Awards, McCarthy tours nationally sharing his delightful humor and performing his finely crafted songs. He has what The Boston Globe calls ?a devastating wit and enormous writing gifts, capable of putting chills into your spine or a silly grin on your face.? Cormac?s songs reveal some of the magic of real life in a truthful, superbly literate style, delivered with a soulful baritone and a hot guitar.
He was chosen as one of the Top Ten Concerts of 1996 by The Boston Phoenix, which called his most recent album, ?Picture Gallery Blues? (Green Linnet Records) ?an unassuming masterpiece?.
