“I can’t rave enough about this dazzling debut, one of the year’s best in every way, with every track a winner. I want to run into the streets and force strangers to stop what they’re doing and listen to this crazy genius girl with her strapped-on cello. Viva la revolution and all things Lindsay Mac.”

Lindsay Mac: A Plucked Cello Revolution

In February 2006, singer and cellist Lindsay Mac was featured on the cover of Strings magazine, rightfully taking her place as a true original in transforming a traditional instrument and raising it to new heights.

Classically trained, Mac is characterized by her combination of plucking the cello and standing while performing. She holds the cello like a guitar, strapped around her small frame, and sings original songs in the folk/jazz tradition. In her pioneering ways she succeeds in creating a sound that is groundbreaking and compelling.

Within her short time on the acoustic music scene, Mac has already garnered diverse and impressive support. She has opened for KD Lang at Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion, "folk goddess" Catie Curtis, Glen Philips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), Vance Gilbert and Daemon Records'' group Girlyman. Mac has also backed up bass legend Charlie Haden and saxophonist Michael Brecker in New York’s Carnegie Hall.

Lindsay Mac’s debut album, “Small Revolution” - aptly named because of her unique approach to playing - includes two-time Grammy- winning cellist, Eugene Friesen; famous fiddler, Matt Glaser (Rounder Records’ The Wayfaring Strangers); and pianist Tim Ray (Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, Jane Siberry). Her image appears in Guitar World, Performing Songwriter, Northeast Performer, and Harp magazines as a part of a promotion deal with the Fostex Corporation. She is one of the few singer/songwriters to ever appear on the cover of the elite Strings magazine.

Through her non-stop touring of the U.S. and Canada, Mac is slowly revolutionizing the way we think about the cello while also expanding the definition of what we know the folk/singer-songwriter genre to be. Mac’s genre-bending is referenced by her reviewers but it is also seen in her audience. To be a fly on the wall at any one of Mac’s 100+ shows per year would be to see flashy hipsters amidst graying babyboomers, children with their classical-loving grandparents in tow, and Mac’s own 20-something young professionals, all under one roof. Perhaps this is also why “Small Revolution” is receiving airplay on over 100 AAA, community, and NPR-affiliate radio stations - all of this in just over a year.

Born and raised by hard-working, party-hungry, bohemian parents in Iowa, Lindsay was fed pork tenderloin and Midwestern microbrews for breakfast (she claims this accounts for her wholesome good looks and generally bad breath). Mac then set out to receive her training at various schools such as The Royal College of Music in London, The San Francisco Conservatory and Berklee College of Music in Boston before eventually trading her seat in the symphony for the vagabond life of a touring singer/songwriter.

Lindsay has been selected as one of four Most Wanted for Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Look for her touring with the Falcon Ridge Preview Tour in May!

Lindsay is hard at work in the studio on her second release. Release date Feb 2008!
