About Denise McCurdy
Denise McCurdy was born in Texas to a family with deep musical roots. Her great-grandfather founded the Texas A&M University Marching Band. She plays her grandfather’s fiddle. She was classically trained in violin and piano, but her heart was taken by the violin.
Denise has played in orchestras, bands, chamber groups, duos and as a solo performer. Currently, she and her guitarist husband John divide their time between the Texas Hill Country and Eastport, Maine.
In Texas, they are the core of Celtic Comfort, a popular five-person group that plays Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton music. In Eastport, Denise and John perform as a duo, entertaining visitors and natives alike at local and regional festivals in New England and Canada’s Maritimes.
They have traveled the length and breadth of the continent and shared their music from New Orleans to Alaska and across the Atlantic to England, Ireland, France, Spain, Holland, Belgium and Italy. Denise’s compositions have been performed by a choir in Scotland and on a BBC Television children’s show. Her latest album “Meditations on the Word” has been called “breathtakingly beautiful,” “inspirational” and “deeply moving.”
