Mary-Lou / Bio

One foot in America, one foot in Brittany, the west part of France, Mary-Lou have been playing their country-folk songs since 1996. The inspiration of the band comes from traditional music of North America, especially from the deep south (bluegrass, cajun,blues, country ballads, folk, ...) mixed with the french songs tradition.
The songs talk about Acadia, Mississippi, Louisiana, swamps, … french lyrics telling stories of the deep south, the hobos, the trains, the dust storms … and the America of the people.
They love Blues, jug bands, old country songs, Jimmie Rodgers, Bob Wills, Pasty Cline, Woody and Arlo Guthrie, the folk singers, the western swing... and much more !
Mary-Lou brings in France sounds and colours of that America that french people love.
That's why, year after year they have been asked to play in many festivals and stages in all parts of France and in Switzerland and Holland.

They spend part of their time in the USA (North Carolina, Florida, Tennessee). They went for several tours in America in the spring of 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 with their friends of the Tammerlin Band, Lee Hunter, Arvid Smith, The Bluegrass Bombers, and Panama Red.
The 7th album of Mary-Lou "Music Medecine Show" has been released in 2012.
The trio will come back in Florida for a couple of gigs in April 2015.
