Folk/Americana/Country singer-songwriter Cathy-Anne McClintock will wrap up an exciting year with a performance at Winestyles in South Pasadena, CA on December 16 at 7 p.m. She will be a special guest along with Ernest Troost. No cover charge, just come and enjoy the music and wine.
McClintock and her band will kick-off 2010 with a return performance at the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood, CA on January 14 as a part of the Indie Thursday Showcase Series. This unique and intimate event has been creating a buzz within the artist community of Los Angeles. Show time is 7:30 p.m. and it is free for all ages.
McClintock was recently named as one of Music Connection magazine’s Hot 100 Unsigned Bands & Artists of the year (December 2009 issue).
Overseas, McClintock is heating up the airwaves with her single “No Matter What”, which has entered the Top 20 on the HOT DISC Charts 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.
