Cady Finlayson specializes in "Spirited Irish fiddle with a global twist", blending traditional Irish fiddle tunes with American folk and world music influences. She has fiddled in places such as Carnegie Hall, Cleveland's State Theatre, the Brooklyn Museum of Art and 33 states. Her playing can also be heard in films ("The Emerald Diamond", "Snakes and Ladders", Random Acts") and even an exercise video (Eirerobics.com). Cady's three CDs have attracted listeners from Australia to Japan.
Her latest CD, "Irish Coffee" was called "delightful and spirited" and was nominated for Best Celtic CD by the 2007 NAR lifestyle awards.
