Kate McGarry and The Tough Get Growing Ensemble is a Durham, NC-based collective featuring Kate’s husband, guitarist Keith Ganz, trumpeter Al Strong, bassist Paul Creel, and drummer Jon Curry.
McGarry & band combine folk and Celtic vocal sensibilities with considerable jazz and improvisation chops in their thoughtful derangements of works by Leonard Cohen, The Blue Nile, Paul Simon, the Eagles and others. McGarry’s emotionally piercing originals and select standards from the Great American Songbook assist the collective as they wrestle well known anthems for challenging times with uplifting results.
