ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nineteen year old, Megan McGarry, has earned the right to be called a distinguished, up-and-coming American Roots artist. She is an award winning multi-instrumentalist (fiddle, clawhammer banjo, and guitar), a notable vocalist, and a very talented song-writer. These three elements are amalgamated to form her debut album, released July 2015.

Megan McGarry is currently enrolled in her third semester at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. There, she immerses herself in the study of American Roots Music. At Berklee, Megan has studied with acclaimed musicians such as Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Tony Triscka, Joe Walsh, Brittany Haas, Casey Driesson and other distinguished professors and Berklee affiliated professional musicians. Megan is majoring in Music Education with plans to teach elementary music overseas. She has excelled in all of her endeavors at Berklee, qualifying for the Dean’s list in both of the semesters she has completed this far in her career.

Along with Megan’s debut solo CD, she is credited on two other works including The Dusty Trout Band's "Fly Reel" released in 2013, and the soon to be released “Ludlow” by The Young Folk.

Megan has gained many awards over her young career. She’s a two time Pennsylvania State Old-Time Fiddle Champion in the junior division. She finished in the top three at the “Distinguished Young Women of Pennsylvania” competition, where she won scholarship based on her talent, public speaking and interview skills. Throughout high school, Megan competed at district, regional, and all-state levels for choir and orchestra. Recently, Megan was chosen by the Berklee College of Music to receive an Urban Service Award for volunteering to perform for patient in the cancer center at the Massachusetts General Hospital.

Megan has had many exciting moments in her young career. Megan, with her father Chris, has had the opportunity to perform throughout Pennsylvania at many local, regional, and state organizational events, festivals, and fairs. In 2011, they were invited by former Gov. Corbett to perform at a private dinner party for a hundred of his top supporters, held inside the Gettysburg Military Museum. She's performed and taught fiddle workshops at Smoked Country Jam Bluegrass Festival, Crooks Farm Old Time Festival, the People's Choice Arts Festival in Boalsburg, PA, Elliott Park Art Festival, and more. Summer of 2015, Megan was chosen to represent Berklee and the American Roots department as a member of The Berklee All-Stars Band to perform at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.
