Cahir O’Doherty is a professional musician best known for his strong resonant voice and lilting guitar producing incomparable Irish and American folk music which people enormously enjoy. Ballads, love songs, humour and traditional sing-a-longs are all within his cheery compass and a good time is guaranteed in the company of this very entertaining singer.
Born in Ireland, Cahir started out as a rock and blues singer and was an immediate success with appearances in Jesus Christ Superstar [Pontius Pilate] and Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat [The Pharaoh]. Hit records saw him appearing with some of the top names in the music business such as The Rolling Stones, Everly Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Jones, Ben E King and Van Morrison.
Cahir is now an American citizen and among the great songs of Ireland, including his own original compositions, do not be surprised to hear some Bob Dylan and John Prine with a bit of good old rock ‘n roll thrown in for fine measure.
Check out his versatile show. As the saying goes – he’s good at his gig! You may even see Cahir’s dog Reilly there!
