Charlie McCarthy

Charlie McCarthy is a solo classical and jazz trained violinist/fiddler with 30 years experience. He performs background classical/jazz/swing/pop standards and his repertory is well suited to enhancing the atmosphere in any venue.

He has been playing at a wide variety of occasions, in bars/restaurants/private functions for the last 15 years and he knows how to play to both boisterous and intimate crowds. He also performs with small groups, classical, jazz, singer/songwriter etc. He has played at shows, weddings, bar and restaurant gigs as a ‘one phone call’ total music solution for all those little functions where a bit of classy live music really enhances the atmosphere.

For classical he can perform unaccompanied or with a small trio as backing and for jazz he can do the same (classical is flute, violin and cello, jazz is violin, guitar and bass). Also as an affordable option he can perform all of the above to high quality backing tracks to give it that 'band' sound, and because he performs solo he does not need to take time between tunes to organise what to play next so the music is virtually continuous for the duration of the engagement. His equipment is portable and can interact with a venues existing PA system if required.
