CATHY-ANNE MCCLINTOCK Ready To Make A Splash In Austin March 20-21



McClintock Ready To Perform At Guero’s Taco Bar March 20
And Lucky Run Ranch House March 21

Unofficially part of South By Southwest (SXSW), americana/folk/country singer-songwriter Cathy-Anne McClintock is ready to make a splash on Austin, Texas.

On Saturday, March 20 she will take the stage at Guero’s Taco Bar (on Congress Ave). Doors open at 9 a.m. and Cathy-Anne performs at 1 p.m. The show is free. Also performing are Debbie Forrest, Lee Alexander & Co., Matt Harlan and DAN DyER.

The next day (March 21), McClintock will perform at Lucky Run Ranch House in Richmond. Joining her will be Steven McClintock and Savannah Berry. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with Savannah Berry kicking things off at 7 p.m. and Cathy-Anne McClintock following at 7:30 p.m. There is a $15 suggested donation at the door.

She has recently performed at Hollywood hot spots The Viper Room (sold-out show!) and Whiskey A Go Go.

McClintock has been nominated for 2010 LA Music Awards in the Americana/Folk Category and she also recently received word she is a finalist in the 6th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA). She is nominated in the Best Group/Duo category for her duet with Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea, “No Matter What.”

McClintock was also recently named as one of Music Connection magazine’s Hot 100 Unsigned Bands & Artists of the year (December 2009 issue) and has been picked as Women’s Radio Hot Up n Comer 2010. 

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.
