Description

Mary has already gained some fantastic exposure in the broadsheets and specialist radio, playing sessions for 6 Music recently and has just opened for American cult artist Baby Dee on her UK tour. She has recorded with Eliza Carthy on Eliza's 'Rough Music' and Mary has also worked with Stereolab offshoot Imitation Electric Piano on their last record. Since becoming a solo performer she has been invited to open for an eclectic mix of artists including St. Etienne, British Sea Power, label mates Bellowhead and Jon Redfern and she played for the 1000th anniversary of Oxford, for the 75th anniversary of Cecil Sharp House (home of English Folk Dance & Song Society) and in the exquisite setting of End Of The Road Festival. Mary's first solo album is a distillation of her musical influences (which include Anne Briggs, Bob Dylan, Bach, traditional fiddle music and British bird song). The subjects Mary covers are timeless and the language she uses, raw and poetic; the stories themselves frequently charged with gothic drama and mystery. The album contains 10 original songs, which focus in various ways on our uncomfortable relationship with the familiar. "At a time when it sometimes seems that one cannot move for new folk, free folk, freak folk, weird folk, outsider folk and goodness knows what else, it's an unqualified joy to discover a collection of songs that sit proudly and uncomplicatedly within the folk tradition." - Sound Projector
