Join Catherine for her first headline appearance at her home town Festival.
Born and raised in Rostrevor, County Down, Catherine learned guitar from her grandmother, who taught her to play and sing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight“. McGrath’s parents are both musicians and were frequent performers at the annual Fiddlers Green Music Festival held in County Down, Northern Ireland. McGrath honed her skills by observing her parents on-stage and by watching instructional videos online. McGrath took up songwriting, and in addition to performing her own material, she began making homemade videos of herself performing current pop hits, which she then posted online. McGrath has enlisted country music influences like Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts; and Swift’s hit song Love Story in particular for introducing her to country music at the age of 12..
McGrath’s videos attracted the attention of Instrumental, a company that finds talent online and grooms them for larger success. She moved to London to work for the company, and after only a few months, began travelling to Nashville for songwriting and studio sessions. In the summer of 2016 McGrath signed with Warner Bros. Records and released her first solo EP One in December later that same year. Her major label debut album, Talk of This Town, is scheduled to be released on July 27, 2018
