Michael Francis McCarthy is an independent American roots musician based in Upstate New York. Born and partially raised in the Andes Mountains of South America, McCarthy has been playing music and traveling the western hemisphere since the age of four, gathering influences from across the wide spectrum of acoustic music forms throughout the Americas. McCarthy has toured extensively and played respected stages from New York to Georgia, New Orleans, Texas and Latin America. His live sets, which feature both original compositions and carefully-selected deep cuts from his favorite artists, combine elements of early country, bluegrass, delta blues, 70s jam, Bolivian folklore and thrash metal on electrified steel string acoustic guitar. Now touring regionally in support of his new album released in January 2021, “Only The Strong Will Survive”, Michael Francis McCarthy is poised for big things in the coming year, in putting a new album and a national tour in early 2022.
