“Distinctly modern, yet also timeless. It’s classical. A little jazzy. Computer literate, yet deliciously steeped in tradition. Mournful, yes, but also hopeful and upbeat.” – Boston Survival Guide

An improvisatory exploration of the common ground between jazz and traditional music from Ireland, India, and more.

George Crotty is a crossover cellist hailing from Toronto, Canada. He traces his family lineage to fiddlers in County Clare, Ireland, and a family of Jewish musicians descended from Felix Mendelssohn. A recent graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Crotty aspires to forge a new linguistic path for the cello by integrating elements from Eastern, Celtic, and Jazz traditions. Recently he performed domestically and abroad with oud / violin virtuoso, Simon Shaheen, as well as American fiddle guru, Darol Anger.

He currently resides in New York City. He’s also a member of NY’s music collective SoSaLa and Musicians For Musicians (MFM).
