Nine time winner of British Columbia’s Best Bluegrass Group, Best Country Group and Best Country CD. “vocal perfection without frills or pretence. Intoxicatingly sweet, honest bluegrass music that will simultaneously break your heart with musical beauty and patch it up again with silent strength. Never before has a hurtin’ song made you so glad to be alive.” Katherine monk, VANCOUVER SUN music critic “I’ve listened to the Osbornes, the Louvins and the Everlys. Now Tumbleweed steps up to the mic to completely captivate me with that magical ingredient. Gosh I do like it.” Manager for CHET ATKINS “…the only Canadian bluegrass videos we’ve ever played….nice to see someone playing the music the way it began so well and so well produced.” CMT Music Director, quoted from BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Cathy-Anne's first solo CD features songs with Grammy Award winning Bluegrass/Folk legend, Tim O’Brien and Alan Doyle from renowned Canadian Celtic, rock group, Great Big Sea. Grammy award winners, John Reischman, and Jim Nunally, join fellow Juno nominated ‘Jaybirds’ Trisha Gagnon(Cathy-Anne's sister) and Nick Hornbuckle, lending their amazing musical talents to the project. The band is focused around Canadian, lead singer Cathy-Anne McClintock and is her vision. It is strongly influenced from her 10 year tenure with her multi award winning Canadian Bluegrass band, Tumbleweed. Add to that the love for U2, Sting, the Stanley Brothers, Tim O'Brien, Alison Krauss, Larry Sparks Conway Twitty, Trisha Yearwood and the Beatles(to name a few!!) you come up with a great mix of material. Cathy-Anne also has a feature performance in Ed Zwick's film, 'Leaving Normal'. Strong songs with good lyric content performed by some of the top players in their genres. The vocal stylings of Cathy-Anne along with her original and autobiographical tunes (sometimes!!) , great harmonies and acoustic instrumentation definitely lead the direction of the act.
