James B. McCarthy

I write originals that catch the ear the heart and the wit in equal part. I am deeply rooted in American and Celtic acoustic traditions and skilled at performing with an electric focus and presence. A trained actor and storyteller, I reach audiences with skilled humor and infectious participation.
