Kicking off 2010 with a bang, folk/americana/country singer-songwriter Cathy-Anne McClintock is ready to hit the stage at Hollywood’s famous music hot spot The Viper Room on Saturday, February 6 at 9:30 p.m. McClintock will perform with her full band as a part of Sean Healy Presents downstairs. Also performing is Lou Wolfe.
Tickets are $10 in advance with flyer or $15 at the door. The show is age 21 and up. Tickets can be purchased at www.cathyannemcclintock.com.
Next, McClintock will join fellow songwriters at M Bar in Hollywood for Women In Music on Wednesday, February 10. Also performing are Leah Andreone, Bota, Kevin Fisher, Bettie Ross and Frank Blume.
Women In Music starts at 8 p.m. with food and full bar available ($10 food minimum) when doors open at 7 p.m. Admission is $10. LAWiM members are free if attending with a guest.
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.
