    A New England-based folk singer, Jaime Brockett enjoyed cult status in the 1969-early 1970s era. On his debut album, Remember the Wind and the Rain, he plays guitar, banjo, and dulcimer. Brockett was a favorite of devotees of late night progressive rock FM radio stations, particularly with his thirteen minute long adaptation of Lead Belly’s (via Blind Lemon Jefferson) "The Titanic", rechristened The Legend of the U.S.S. Titanic, co-written with Chris Smither. His music ranges from talking blues to country to folk. He can be silly or heartfelt, but he is always honest. In 1968 Broadside magazine selected Brockett as the number one male Boston performer, he was also selected as the best new performer, and placed second in instrumentalist and third in the songwriter category. He still lives in New England and has recorded with, Ricky Skaggs, The Seldom Scene, Kevin Roth, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot and has shared the stage with Joan Baez, Richie Havens, Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Tom Paxton, Jimmy Buffet and may other great artists. Cormac McCarthy was nominated for both Outstanding Folk/Acoustic Act, and Outstanding Folk/ Acoustic Album by the Boston Music Awards. McCarthy’s album, Troubled Sleep helped to kick off the Green Linnet Records' prestigious singer-songwriter Redbird Series devoted to the most creative of this generations acoustic musicians and songwriters. Troubled Sleep won high praise and some overseas attention in the UK. McCarthy was honored to be one of the artists asked to perform in Boston’s WUMB Folk Radio 10th Anniversary Celebration. McCarthy has been invited 3 times to the stage of the Newport Folk Festival, and twice to appear on NPR’s "Mountain Stage" Live radio show. A fan favorite and regular at the Hartland Folk Festival, he is a frequent special guest to many of the most popular musicians of the genre. His talents as an on stage humorist have been well remarked upon over recent years, and gave cause to have him invited to headline for the Night of Humor and Songwriters in Boston’s Somerville Theater. McCarthy is regarded by fellow musicians and fans alike as one of New England’s finest songwriters. He writes and sings of a heartfelt, sometimes funny, sometimes desperate, sometimes glorious world of common people, struggles, hope, relationships, madness, and love. He sings the poetry of real life with a silky baritone voice and just enough grit. Picture Gallery Blues has been call called a masterpiece. The release of Curious Thing and now Collateral are also a masterworks to be shared with all who have come to know and treasure Cormac McCarthy’s songwriting and delivery. Presently, Cormac and his wife Sammie Haynes live in a small town in southern Maine adjacent to the lively Seacoast arts scene centered on Portsmouth, NH.
