Welcome to cathymcevoy.com!
I’m a full-time musician based in Dublin, Ireland. As a fiddle player I play a wide variety of styles including bluegrass, traditional, contemporary and classical in ensembles including The Whole Hog, The Cabin Crew, Imrama, The Lazy Band, The Sugarmoon Boys,  The Enda Reilly Band and the Bamboo Sessions Quartet.

I’m Artistic Director of a rather splendid vocal harmony group called The Gospel Project and I teach in Waltons New School of Music in Dublin city centre. I’m conductor/musical director of Sandymount Gospel Choir, the Waltons Sing Your Heart Out Choir and the Portmarnock Singers. I’m a harmony nerd, I spend at least one day a week creating vocal arrangements for The Gospel Project, Sandymount Gospel Choir  as well as creating bespoke arrangements for commercial clients (Actually sometimes I arrange songs just for the hell of it, but I’ve found it’s better not to admit to that in public…..) Finally, and possibly most importantly, I write music. And sometimes I write about writing & performing music, which may be why you’re here…. I’ve released a new EP, Letters to Loved Ones which I  hope you’ll check out.

Hopefully you’ll find any other information you’re looking for here in the meantime (unless you’re searching for a recipe for moussaka or something, in which case you’ve just got the wrong website….) But if I’ve left anything out – or if you just want to say hello – please drop me an email on cathymcevoymusic@gmail.com.


Heard You Call My Name released!

The latest single from my new EP is now available from iTunes_Badge_Small_44x15

Penned by yours truly and performed with raucous energy by The Gospel Project, this first single from the Letters to Loved Ones EP is guaranteed to have you humming and clapping along. Or your 99c back 🙂 Enjoy.




  1. Cathy, I see you have made an arrangement of Everybody’s Free- ‘Romeo & Juliet’ Soundtrack SATB + Alto Soloist. I am a South African conductor and we have been asked to perform this oiece at a wedding in 3 weeks… would you be willing to share your arrangement with me? Please…

    Hi Cathy – well done on your EP ( I bought a copy at the Cabin Sessions a few months ago ) – you deserved that glass of prosecco ! Your experience as a professional musician shows in the songs – excellent melodies and good arrangements, along with very good singers and vocal harmonies – liked the gospel vibe and some of the songs have a Leonard Cohen feel also . From reading your website I see you have an extremely busy schedule to earn a living – a lot of good advice on it also for performers, songwriters etc. Best of luck with all your ventures and see you soon at one of the Cabin Sessions ! All the best . Tom Horan

    Hi Cathy. The album is truly entertaining and inspiring. Wishing you every success.

    Hi Cathy. Amazing term-end concert. We all loved it. You are a true professional. We’re all very grateful for your guidance and good-humoured approach to teaching. You must be the crown jewel of waltons school. Have a great Christmas. We’ll be counting the hours to resuming in 2018.

    P.s. any chance of putting the performance up on YouTube. My father is not well at the moment and he would love to see it.


    • cmevoy says:

      Thanks PJ! A great concert that we can all be proud of, glad you all enjoyed it as much as I did 🙂 I’m sorry to hear your father’s not well, we’ll definitely get some footage up on YouTube for him to take a look at. I’ll send out the link to the class one it’s live. Happy Christmas.

  5. PJ Crawley says:

    Hi Cathy. Many thanks for that. Wishing you and your family a peaceful and happy Christmas.


  6. PJ Crawley says:

    Hi Cathy. I may have to skip this term as my father is very ill and I need to look after him. I hate being away from the choir, more than any of the other groups that I’m associated with, but he is in the final stages of cancer and I need to be there for him
    Will be back in the second term.

  7. cmevoy says:

    PJ, so sorry. I knew there must be something serious when we didn’t see you back this term and hope you’re coping ok with this very difficult period. Hope to see you back soon. Take care.

  8. PJ Crawley says:

    Hi Cathy
    Hope all is well with you. Just arrived back from Paris and the first thing that I heard was that waltons is closing down. I hope that this doesn’t impact on the choir.

    Very best regards

      Hi PJ, Welcome home! The good news is that the music school is going full steam ahead, so no impact on the Sing Your Heart Out Choir. The sad news is that the shop downstairs has indeed closed down unfortunately. But it’s business as usual upstairs. Looking forward to having you back with us after Easter!
      all the best

  9. PJ Crawley says:

    Brilliant Cathy. I am out of the woods now but it’s probably too late to catch up in this term. Looking forward to returning. I will be at the term -end performance. See you next term. Many thanks for the response.


  10. PJ Crawley says:

    Hi Cathy.
    Hope all is well with you. When does the next term begin.

    Best wishes
