Cathy-Anne’s first solo CD features songs with Grammy Award winning Bluegrass/Folk legend, Tim O’Brien and Alan Doyle from renowned Canadian Celtic, rock group, Great Big Sea.
Grammy award winners, John Reischman, and Jim Nunally, join fellow Juno nominated ‘Jaybirds’ Trisha Gagnon(Cathy-Anne’s sister) and Nick Hornbuckle, lending their amazing musical talents to the project.
The band is focused around Canadian, lead singer Cathy-Anne McClintock and is her vision. It is strongly influenced from her 10 year tenure with her multi award winning Canadian Bluegrass band, Tumbleweed.
Add to that the love for U2, Sting, the Stanley Brothers, Tim O’Brien, Alison Krauss, Larry Sparks Conway Twitty, Trisha Yearwood and the Beatles(to name a few!!) you come up with a great mix of material.
Cathy-Anne also has a feature performance in Ed Zwick’s film, ‘Leaving Normal’.
Strong songs with good lyric content performed by some of the top players in their genres. The vision of Cathy-Anne along with her original and autobiographical tunes (sometimes!!) , great harmonies and acoustic instrumentation definitely lead the direction of the act.
