Cormac McCarthy CD Release

Event Date: 
Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 8:00pm

Cormac McCarthy is considered one the finest singer/songwriters that New England has ever produced. Join us in celebrating the release of his new CD, Collateral. Already deemed his best recording yet, this is a reentry for Cormac into the roots of the music he grew up on.

"Like the restless souls inhabiting Woody Guthrie's best work, McCarthy's characters struggle to find a haven in an evermore-fractured society, fighting to retain their decency in an indecent world, and to discover hope and love in the depths of their own courage. As McCarthy has, and does, live among the people populating his songs, he writes about them with an insider's intuition and understanding. In these beautifully honed lyrics, each as rich in detail and emotion as a short novel, the listener divines the celebration of the common heart of America" - Bruce Pratt, from Collateral liner notes
He was called by the Boston Globe, "A leading light of the urban songwriter revival..." who proclaimed his album, Curious Thing a "soft-spoken triumph." Picture Gallery Blues was called "an unassuming masterpiece" by the Boston Phoenix.
Cormac continues to grow as an artist and it's evident on his new CD, Collateral. It's the product of wisdom and experience with lyrics and images "too precise to be anything but truth." (Portsmouth Herald)
