Cormac McCarthy presents his latest CD, “Curious Thing”, and will give a live performance of songs and commentary. As a precursor to this event, McCarthy will also perform live on air Friday morning March 7th during the Live Music Showcase on WMNF 88.5 FM.
Cormac McCarthy’s last CD, “Picture Gallery Blues” was called an “unassuming masterpiece” by the Boston Phoenix and word has spread that his new CD release, “Curious Thing” outshines it.
McCarthy is established as one of New England’s finest singer songwriters.
Two-time nominee for the Boston Music Awards, McCarthy tours nationally sharing his delightful humor and performing his finely crafted songs. He has what The Boston Globe calls a “devastating wit and enormous writing gifts, capable of putting chills into your spine or a silly grin on your face.” Cormac’s songs reveal some of the magic of real life in a truthful, superbly literate style, delivered with a soulful baritone and a hot guitar.
“Curious Thing”, not only rattles the imagination with its unclassifiable nature but also soothes the soul with its pure unbridled simplicity and collar-straight delivery.
Experientially, McCarthy is leagues above his peers and he is the closest thing New England’s ever come to having our own Woody Guthrie...a brilliant collection of songs.”

"In a brilliant performance Friday night that took listeners on an emotional roller coaster from side-splitting laughter to the brink of tears and back again, Cormac McCarthy displayed the art of contemporary folk at its finest."

“I rarely issue directives but, next time he comes within 100 miles you must go hear him!” (Seth Rogovoy - special to The Boston Phoenix). The Phoenix also chose his as one of the Top Ten concerts (which included Bob Dylan and Ani Defranco).
