"I've been in the music business for more than 40 years," he said, "and I've not heard many like her. She's a wonderfully gifted performer, and a natural musician with an absolutely gorgeous voice. I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that she is going to become a great star."
Mary Kathleen Burke is, indeed, a wonderful talent. She is a truly gifted singer/songwriter who released her first album "A Song in her Heart" to great critical acclaim in February 2008. Mary sings from her heart. Her song "My Scotsman and Thee", with its tale of longing for home, going home but being in love with someone from another country, epitomises a common theme in folk music. Mary wrote this song when she was only nineteen years old, but it is still as fresh today. Mary certainly manages to captivate audiences wherever she plays
