Product Notes

Born in southern Vermont and raised on a small organic farm in the Connecticut river valley, Colin was the second child in a creative and artistic family of four children. At an early age they traveled throughout New England performing Gospel, Irish and American folk songs. His love of stringed instruments and harmony singing gradually drew him deeper into mountain music, Quebecois fiddle tunes, Cajun, Country, and Bluegrass. After Colin moved to Boston to complete a degree in music at Berklee College of Music he ran back to the Green Mountains of Vermont to sink into the woods and soak up the earthy sounds of the northern Appalachians. No stranger to Swing, ethnic world music, or Rock and Roll, Colin - out of necessity - developed a well-rounded and successful full-time career in music. Colin's songwriting and playing are rooted in traditional folk and American forms. Self produced and recorded in 2003, his acclaimed independent release Make Your Way Home fuses bluegrass, country, folk, zydeco, and roots rock into a unique regional hybrid; making it a top-10 winner for VT albums of 2003 in both the The Burlington Free Press and Seven Days. Colin Clary of Seven Days called it an '...perfectly balanced, beautiful sounding bluegrass/folk record packed with high quality songs and high caliber musicianship.' Colin's guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and bass playing are the backbone of the record that also features Kerrville winner Patti Casey and stellar playing by regional stars Jim Pitman on Dobro and Jeremiah McLane on Accordion. Colin is a record producer, sound engineer, arranger, and session musician. He composes music for film, ballet, jingles, and live theater. Colin and his wife - author Laura Williams McCaffrey - live in East Montpelier VT beside the beautiful Winooski River. ------------ 'Colin's music is steeped in a lifetime of knowledge and love for a number of great American musical traditions, and in his own musical adventures he shows keen respect for them without in the least being bound by them.' - Pete Sutherland 'Mixing old-time bluegrass, folksy Americana and a comforting vocal tone that falls somewhere between Peter Rowan and James Taylor, McCaffrey is a Green Mountain treasure worth unearthing.' - Tom Huntington, The Burlington Free Press ------------ Recent appearances: - Wheatlands Folk Festival 2002 - The Kent State Folk Festival 2002 - Champlain Valley Folk Festival 2002 - Anchorage Folk Festival 2003 - Folk Alliance Nashville 2003 - Champlain Valley Folk Festival 2005.
