Mike McCarthy is an acoustic roots musician from the mountains of rural New Hampshire. Mixing elements of early blues, classic country and traditional folk music, McCarthy lays down solid American roots songs with driving rhythm, competent slide guitar and tasteful improvisation, accompanied by a powerful vocal delivery. His repertoire of original compositions, traditional standards and select covers ranges from melancholy folk and country ballads of love and loss to dusty, moaning back-roads blues, with echoes of his hard-rock past coming through in the unrelenting rhythm of his picking hand. With one foot firmly planted in the past and the other stomping through vital, fresh interpretations of traditional sounds, Mike McCarthy is one young roots musician to keep an eye on in the years to come.
