George Crotty will add some fresh Canadian air to the SoSaLa ambience
Yesterday a young Canadian cellist George Crotty joined SoSaLa. He’s the 2nd cellist from Boston’s Berklee School joining my collective music project. The other cellist is Naseem Alatrash.
Yesterday we jammed in his apartment in Bushwick. I loved the sound of his cello. Thanks Alejandro Castellano for bringing us together!!!!
In-between the jam we talked about musician rights and issues and of course also about Musicians For Musicians, Inc – MFM. He agreed that music and business go hand in hand. In a second he decided to join MFM and wants to advocate #MakingMusicIsAProfession in his home town Toronto.

About George Crotty
George Crotty is a crossover cellist from Toronto, Canada. He retraces his family lineage to both Irish fiddlers in Co. Clare, and a family of proud Jewish musicians descended from Felix Mendelssohn. A recent graduate of the Berklee College of Music, George aspires to forge a new linguistic path for the cello, integrating elements from Eastern, Celtic, and Jazz traditions. He looks to cello pioneers like Eugene Friesen, Natalie Haas, Mark Summer, and Erik Friedlander for inspiration, among others.
