ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chuck McCabe began his life "on-the-road". He was born into a career Navy family that moved every 2 years.

For 20 years he lived in the deep South, far North, and up and down both coasts. (Key West, Seattle, Rhode Island, San Diego)

The travel must have gotten into his blood, for he chose a career that would keep him on the road for the next 20 years, as well. He played summers on Cape Cod, winters in Vail & Steamboat and recorded both in Nashville and L.A. (for Capitol, ABC and GRT). He was a staff writer for ABC.

He started out on 5-string banjo, and played it in Disneyland at Frontierland's Golden Horseshoe Saloon. He took up guitar, and has played that just about everywhere else... from trendy bars on Sunset Strip, to USO shows in the wilds of Viet Nam, Thailand, Japan and the Philippines.

This veteran performer does his own music now, and recently released a CD, entitled Burgers and Champagne. A vein of humor runs through his distinctly American music, drawing from ragtime and blues along the lines of Fats Waller and Jimmy Rodgers, and their modern counterparts like Leon Redbone and Randy Newman. Somebody once said Chuck's musical style falls somewhere between Roger Miller and Hoagy Carmichael.

In the past year his material has received recognition from the Napa Music and Wine Festival, the Sisters (Oregon) Folk Fest, the Sierra Songwriters' Festival, Tucson Folk Festival, the Wildflower Festival in Dallas, and the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Okemah, Oklahoma (Woody's hometown).

After watching one of Chuck's performances, Erik Darling, of the legendary Weavers and Rooftop singers described him like this: "Onstage, he appears taller."
