Paco Cathcart

  • Indie Folk

The Cradle is the musical project of Paco Cathcart. Born and raised in Brooklyn, and having cut their teeth at seminal DIY venues such as Palisades, The Glove, Silent Barn, etc, Cathcart has been a fixture in the New York underground for a decade or so. Often the lone “singer-songwriter” on bills with noise musicians, performance artists and clowns, Cathcart’s eclectic music reflects their locality in a thriving experimental arts scene, as well as their root interests in folk music, story-telling, history and poetry. Cathcart has something like 50 releases on cassette, vinyl, CD, and digitally, through many different indie labels, notably NNA Tapes, as well as self-releasing.
