Years Performed: 2017
Caitlin “Cat” McWilliams, a St. Augustine, Florida native, was in high school when she picked up the first guitar and started discovering her voice. In a few short years, she became a respected and popular guitarist/singer/songwriter around Jacksonville. From 2012-2015, Cat played as a member of a local band, Yankee Slickers. She’s shared the stage with JJ Grey & Mofro, Ana Popovic, The Lee Boys, Leftover Salmon, Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, Canary in the Coalmine, The Corbitt Brothers, EarFunk and Catfish Alliance, to name a few.
Cat can be heard belting the blues, or rocking to the classics up and down the East Coast. At first glance, Cat may appear as a quiet soul but when she gets behind a microphone or strumming on her Gibson, she captivates the crowd with her powerful lead vocals and guitar skills.
