Biography

Jacob McCauley is an award-winning Bodhrán player (Toronto Fleadh Music Competition, March 2008), Detroit Midwest Fleadh May 2008, 2009) and most recently winning first place in the Chicago Midwest Fleadh (2010). He is an active recording musician, performer and touring artist, having played with many different traditional groups around the world.

Jacob’s unique Bodhrán technique has allowed him to more recently branch out from traditional music into other genres such as Jazz, Metal, Experimental and World Music. Utilizing his new back hand technique and tipper hold (integrating Top-End and Kerry Style influences into his own unique style), Jacob has begun to incorporate a much larger range of melodic notes, as well as intricate, complex and odd time signatures such as his favourite 7/8 and 13/16. He is currently in production of his first Bodhrán Instructional DVD, an experimental album with guitarist Santiago Dobles & bass player Alan Goldstein of progressive Metal band "Aghora" and several other projects.

Throughout his career some of the artists he has performed and recorded with include the multi award-winning Irish band the "Chieftains", award-winning Scottish band "Lau", award-winning Quebec based “Genticorum” 3 time All Ireland Champion Irish fiddler Maeve Donnelly, several time Canadian and US National Fiddle Champion Shane Cook, 2 time Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Champion Julie Fitzgerald, award-winning multi-instrumentalist Steafan Hannigan, and Chicago-based duo "Bohola".

Jacob is also an experienced Bodhrán instructor, giving workshops, teaching privately and is a faculty member at the Riverside Celtic College teaching Advanced Bodhrán.
