Folk Roots Radio Episode 350: Cathy Hutch In The Studio

New Brunswick’s Cathy Hutch joins us in the studio on Episode 450 of Folk Roots Radio for a wonderful in-depth conversation about her music and some live songs. A wonderful bluesy singer-songwriter, she’s also comfortable in folk, country and rock. So settle down and enjoy Cathy Hutch live in the studio on Folk Roots Radio. Check out the full playlist below.


Cathy Hutch has a been described as a mix of Melissa Etheridge, Pat Benatar, & Jann Arden. I’d say she’s far more bluesy than that – she reminds me of a bluesy Irish Mythen. A multi-talented and passionate performer she writes and sings from the core of her very being.

Her debut album, “Not Goin’ Back” (the title song was written for a women’s shelter), is a collection of 10 original songs that she recorded in Nashville with B. J. McKelvie and released in 2008. It also contains her song “I’m In Here” (co-written with B. J. McKelvie) which earned her the 2008 Diane London Award; (Fredericton, NB), a NB Oscar for Autism. I’m In Here is now known worldwide as the Anthem for Autism.

Her latest CD, entitled “Free Wheelin’” pays homage to the blues and classic rock, was produced by Paul Milner (Eddy Grant, Keith Richards, Matt Andersen, Glass Tiger). The album also features Chris Corrigan (lead guitar), Colten Craft (keyboards), John Rosengren (bass) and Geoff Arsenault on drums.
