Mary Christine: WHAT'S NEW?

Poetry tonight! Earth Day concert shined! - April 21, 2015

Thank you to all who were with us yesterday (in presence and in spirit) at Heather Pierson's Earth Day Concert at the First Universalist Church in Norway.  We had a fabulous event and I look forward this event every year :)

Tonight I'm honored again to be joining the Mountain Poets in a Presentaion of Earth Day poetry at 7 pm at The Commons, next to the Fare Share Mkt, 447 Main St. Norway. Thirteen of us will be reciting poems in honor of our Mother Earth. One of my poems has evolved into a song so I'm bringing the uke and plan to sing :)  Light refreshments will be served. Only a $1-2 donation is suggested. 

If you can, please do drop in. Contact info. is on the Calendar Pg.

New poem, Spring gigs - March 21, 2015

Hi All,

Happy First Day of Spring!  Pinch me so I know it's not a dream :)

There's a new poem for you on the POETRY Pg. written this past February. A 'fruit' from the season!

And two upcoming April gigs are listed on the CALENDAR Pg. where I'll be sharing some new original music and poetry.  Hope to see you there.

Mary :)

P.S.  The ukulele Muse has returned and I have some new uke songs in the works - in the hopes to record  my future UKULELE CD!  Will give you progress reports on that as things progress.

Two New Videos - March 3, 2015

Hi, I hope you are recovering from the winter of 2015.  And to keep you good and strong -  there are two new videos from the past couple of months on the VIDEOS Pg.

I wrote Folksome Valley Blues last year during the cold snap but it sure fits this year's deep freeze, brrrr.  And the vintage guitar in the video is similar to one that I owned a long time ago, a Suzuki with the same sweet sound.  I just found it after searching for many moons. It's a keeper!

Good Ole Friend is another original ukulele ong that Steve and I like to play often.  This clip is from a Christmas video we made for the kids this past December.

Now I'm in the process of lining up some spring / summer gigs. Will keep you posted.

Oh and Enjoy the Free Downloads on the MUSIC Pg!

Love, Mary

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! - January 26, 2014

Brrrrrr!  This has been the one of the coldest winters in the country and I'm recovering from some slips on the ice including a roll-over with our pick up truck!  'Totalled the vehicle and now have another,  bruised a rib and suffured some whip-lash but I'm still standing. 

Life is so precious and I feel fortunate to be alive!   So if you've been where I normally hang out and haven't seen me there in awhile, now you know why.  I miss you all so much.

But I'm with you in spirit and look forward to all our upcoming reunions :)  

  Yep, the secrets are out and the SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT IS: SPECIAL GUESTS ON MY UPCOMING CD ARE -  HEATHER PIERSON, LINDSEY MONTANA, JEFF ROJO, NATE TOWNE, BOB WALLACE,  RUSTY WILTJER, and ofcours my husband STEVE HARGREAVES.

 The CD title is "Set O'Wheels" with 12 original traveling folk songs, written for the traveler in all of us. The album itself has been a long journey, produced at home with the help of my friends and family.  I hope to have a CD release celebration this year.

Now I'm off to my workshop.

Happy Listening & Have a Great Day!

Busy Busy! - November 19, 2013

Well, I'm back from Gardiner where I teamed up with my Spanish guitar accompanist to hear his track for my upcoming CD. Already I have songs with lead guitar tracks by several wonderful guitarists and a bassist and percussionist magnifique all set. AND on Dec 1 I'm meeting with my piano accompaniste exraordinaire! These guys & gal are adding the frosting to my already delicious "cake" that has taken me over four years to record and engineer.
A labor of love about to enter the final stages, 'does this sound like party? You bet!

Stay tuned,  M

Honeybee is home! - October 13, 2013

Ahhh,

Just got back my Honeybee, I mean my Taylor GSMini guitar and it feels so good to be in my arms again. I had found a gap in the seam at the bottom of the guitar after playing it for only two years. Bought it new so you can imagine my disappointment. Anyway, took it back to John at Friendly River Music in Cornish and he made it right.

Tears are dried and now I'm ready to finish up my new CD! It's getting better all the time! Got some wonderful talent lined up to accompany me on a few of the songs. Soon "Set O Wheels" will be in motion! And if you want to visit a fun website check out ~ www.friendlyrivermusic.com ~ vintage guitars and ukuleles galore!

Update on CD - October 15, 2012

Hi to All,

Hope you've had a great summer and are enjoying the beautiful Fall weather. I've had a full year of super family events including grandbabies and a wedding for my daughter!  Now that I have some quiet time I'm back in the studio and have been fine tuning the finished songs.  So far, things are progressing very well with the new CD. 

Good things do take time and I can't wait to share my traveling CD full of rollin Folk, Americana, jazzy Blues, and a bit of Reggae, recorded by yours truly with a few surprises!

These days I'm putting it to the grindstone recording & mixing and will post progress reports and song samples  soon on the music page at my website.

Thanks for your patience and support.

You're the Best,

Mary C.
