Currently making a major splash in the indie Folk/Americana market with her self-titled debut on 37 Records, emerging singer-songwriter Cathy-Anne McClintock (www.cathyannemcclintock.com) will perform at The Airliner for Tank Tuesdays in Los Angeles on October 13. The show begins at 9:30 p.m.
On October 14, she will join her husband Steven McClintock and John Batdorf at Winestyles in Pasadena, where she will be a special guest along with Larry Wayne Clark. On this night, it’s all about the wine and the songs from 7-9 p.m.
McClintock has been busy continuing on her incredible music journey performing around the U.S., Canada and Europe, since releasing her self-titled debut album earlier this year. Her latest single “Crazy ‘Bout You” has been climbing charts around the world, reaching the Top 40 on the Canada Music News chart and Top 20 on the Hot Country Europe chart. She is preparing to release “No Matter What”, her duet with Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea, to country radio in Europe.
Since moving to Southern California to focus on her solo career several years ago, she established herself as a formidable performer with gigs at hotspots like Genghis Cohen, The Mint, Kulaks, Hallenbecks and various special events, including Laguna Beach’s Pageant of the Masters, Sunset Serenade Series, Far West Folk Alliance, Canadian Music Week and the popular folk series The Living Tradition. At a particularly memorable gig at the House of Blues on Sunset, she opened for Canadian Celtic rockers Great Big Sea for an audience comprised of fellow Canadians; one of the highlights was Russell Crowe sitting in and singing a few Johnny Cash tunes with the band.
McClintock’s emergence as a solo artist is simply the latest triumph in a career that would make anyone want to “live like that.” Shortly after the Vancouver born and raised performer and her older sister Trisha Gagnon formed their bluegrass band Tumbleweed in the 90s, they played their first show on a slate in British Columbia with superstars Dolly Parton and Dwight Yoakam at Music 91, a government sponsored road show designed to boost tourism.
Tumbleweed enjoyed an incredible ten year run that included playing major folk and country festivals throughout Canada, performing in France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Switzerland, doing private shows for bigwigs like Rupert Murdoch and playing special engagements for thousands of schoolchildren. They were also winners of British Columbia’s Best Country Group, Best Country CD and nine time winners of B.C.’s Best Bluegrass Group.
