The McCarthy family consists of Kari, Brendan and their three daughters Celina, Alena and Alisa.
Kari and Brendan met in Norway in the year 1993 and were married after two years. Both had been performing music in their own fields, Kari in gospel, Norwegian folk songs and modern and Brendan mostly modern and Irish. They both liked each others style and soon were performing together and have been performing ever since. It was a wonderful gift that they were given three daughters all with similar musical talents.The McCarthy family now performs around Switzerland and Europe.
The McCarthy's believe each Wedding ,birthday party or concert is unique event with different audiences. Sure they have a basic repertoire which they know the clients enjoy but each performance is a different ballgame and because of many years of experience they are able to ensure that the performance will have a pretty good chance of being a success. The McCarthy's music consists of many modern songs mixed with oldies, gospels, a touch of Jazz and many Irish Jigs and ballads.
The McCarthy's love people and love to make them happy. There is more pleasure in giving than taking and they try to bring this through in every performance.
