Katie McNally


Katie McNally grew up playing Scottish and Cape Breton music in Boston, MA.  A native Bostonian with Canadian roots, she recorded her latest album, The Boston States, in Cape Breton in 2016. Under the guidance of producer Wendy MacIsaac, McNally has curated a collection of tunes that draw inspiration from recordings of Cape Breton fiddlers both in Nova Scotia and Massachusetts, sculpted by the creative energy of the Boston acoustic music scene. A member of the cross-genre fiddle supergroup Childsplay, Katie has also toured with Karan Casey, John Whelan, Galician bagpiper Carlos Núñez, and in her own projects, the Katie McNally Trio and Fàrsan. In addition to her busy touring schedule, she is a devoted educator who teaches regularly at fiddle courses across North America and Europe and gives private lessons at her home in Portland, ME.
