Jo McCafferty Music

Jo McCafferty

All profits to go to the Scottish Association for Mental Health

Jo has been playing since she was a teenager, both solo and in various bands including Charlotte Says and Modern Uses for Velcro. She released her first album at 17, Nothing Whispered to Katy. In 2001 she released the album Radiaxial, an album featuring many live favourites which seemed to capture a lot of people’s imagination, this led to a lot of interest from various musicians and a lot of support slots and for the next few years Jo toured the UK playing with artists as diverse as Midge Ure and Glenn Tilbrook, Marillion and Donnie Munro.

In 2005 Jo was invited to be a guest support for US Singer/Songwriter Amanda Palmers first solo gig in the UK, and she formed the Jo McCafferty Band to play the show. In recent years since starting a family Jo has pulled back on live and recorded work, still finding time to do an occasional special guest spot for Joan Armatrading, Fish and Mike Hunt, as well as appearing as a special guest for Marillion at their fanclub convention in the Netherlands, an event attended by over 3,000 people from around the world.

For this rare show in aid of Scottish Association for Mental Health, Jo has pulled together some "weel kent" faces from Aberdeen's music scene to reimagine songs from throughout her career, from some old favourites, to new material, as well as some rarely heard gems.
