Caitlin Hanford has a voice with a pure, Appalachian quality, perfectly
suited to the high, lonesome sound of traditional country and bluegrass. She hails from Bainbridge Island, Washington. She grew up in a house filled with music, from The Weavers to Dave Brubeck to Flatt and Scruggs. At age eight her father showed her how to play chords on a vintage jumbo Kay guitar, and she never looked back.
In 1978 Caitlin immigrated to Canada after graduating from McGill University and meeting her husband, Chris Whiteley. Together Chris and Caitlin carved a path in the Canadian country music scene in the 1980s with several Juno nominations and many charted singles of original country songs. She has also had many songs published in Nashville, her most recent, a cut on the Rounder recording “A Little Girl, A Big Four-Lane” by Alecia Nugent, produced by Carl Jackson.
Caitlin currently enjoys a rich musical life with her solo career, Quartette, and the roots-based trio The Marigolds, with Suzie Vinnick and Gwen Swick.
