Biography

Perhaps we should let the facts speak for themselves.

Barry Mc Cabe comes from Virginia, Co. Cavan, Ireland but has travelled all over the world to bring his music to the people. He has been working extensively on the European mainland over the past ten years, he has toured in the US and also in such far away lands as Egypt! Some say the bagpipes originated in Egypt and while we’re waiting for that fact to be confirmed we can confirm that they all loved Barry’s mixture of blues and Irish music over there.

Barry’s music can best be described as rock & blues with a Celtic twist!

Barry collaborated with Davy Spillane to release the critically acclaimed CD “The Peace Within”. This was the birth of Celtic-Blues. Davy Spillane is the well-known uilleann pipe player who played in Riverdance. He has also played with Bryan Adams, Van Morrison, Chris Rea and many others.

Barry played support to Rory Gallagher on his last European tour, which included the Paradiso club (where part of the Rolling Stones “Stripped” CD was recorded).

He appeared last summer with Status Quo & ZZ Top at the Montereau Festival in Paris, France.

He also headlined the Waterpop Festival in Holland for 20,000 people.

Barry’s version of the Fred James song “Full Moon On Main Street” won the Sheheshe Music Award in 2005.

Barry’s own composition “One Of These Days” was voted one of the top six blues songs in the world by the Backas Jazz Society in Helsinki, Finland in 2006.
