From their first show, the McCarthy Trio knew they were on to something good! When playing all members of the Trio put a spin on the sound, direction and balance of the composition. As true collaborators, the soul of the Trio's sound depends on this.
Playing a mix of modern jazz, blues and originals, a Kevin McCarthy Trio performance takes its listeners on a journey. Mike Enriquez holds down the bass and is perfectly supportive with every note. His solos reflect the depth of a very musical voice. Chris Goplerud drives the band with an infectious groove, always nimble and creative. Chris has a deep knowledge of jazz and a passion for the music that is inspirational. Kevin McCarthy has been performing and teaching guitar for 24 years. His music is a confluence of jazz and blues.
The Kevin McCarthy Trio has played with great acclaim in venues around Telluride including, the 2016 Telluride Jazz Festival, Telluride Wine Festival, Sheridan Opera House, Wright Opera House, Sherbino Theater, and the Palm Theater. Look for them at the Liberty Bar and at the 2017 Telluride Jazz Festival this summer.
