Beth Cahill

Beth was born in Evanston Illinois, but has been and lived just about everywhere since. She started out as a classical musician, playing the French Horn, and later took up singing and songwriting. A life long love affair with the mandolin lead her to explore other instruments that speak to the world in fifths (tenor guitar, mandola and cittern). This tonal structure, her off-the-beaten-path view of the world, and her voice are the foundations of her sound. Beth has appeared on major regional stages including Kerrville Folk Festival, Festival Memoire et Racines, The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the PBS syndicated television show The Texas Music CafĂ© and WFMT’s Folkstage. She has been a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist and has also been fortunate to share the stage with some great artists including: Eliza Gilkyson, Jack Hardy, Jeff Lang and Maura O’Connell. She now lives in Wakefield, Quebec, but tours extensively across North America; both as a solo artist and as part of The Malvinas.
