Debby McClatchy Concert
Debby McClatchy's glorious singing and the wide variety of folk music she performs, keep people flocking to her concerts. Appalachian banjo and fiddle tunes, California gold rush songs, Irish ballads, and much more, are presented with skill, wit, and incomparable charm. Accompanying herself on banjo, Debby is equally at home with both traditional and contemporary material. She has performed at major folk festivals, folk clubs, banjo camps, and in concert halls throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. She has been heard on numerous radio shows including NPR's A Prairie Home Companion and has recorded 11 albums.
Debby was a college student in San Francisco when she was drawn into the 1960's folk music scene. People loved her singing so much that she left school to become a full time folk singer. Much of the music she sings calls on her family's roots. Her paternal great-great grandfather left Ireland for the 1849 California gold rush and then founded a newspaper chain, while her mother's family goes back seven generations in western Virginia and the Smoky Mountains. Growing up with such a sense of history and diverse musical heritage solidly underpins McClatchy's deep knowledge and respect for the origins of the music she makes. Her powerful songwriting and occasional use of contemporary material are directly related to and rooted in her ingrained sense of the traditional forms of the music.
Join in the music on Friday, October 8, at 8:00 pm at OSA, 220 E. 23rd Street, suite 707, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues.
