Greetings friends,

Hope you are all well!

Just returned from the Folk Alliance in Toronto, CA where I had the opportunity to  play several showcases with some very talented Toronto musicians. Martin Van  Deven joined me on clarinet for my official showcase and pictured here with me (note the new, pink capo) is Rachel Capon, originally from the Province of British Columbia.  She is classically trained and plays with her husband Eli in a cello duo called Hale and Hearty.  Check them out at www.haleandheartymusic.com.

It was a wonderful gathering of Folk music from many countries, including the UK, Canada, South America, Switzerland, Australia and the US.  One highlight for me was seeing Judy Collins perform. Originally from Denver and an East High School graduate,  she has become a folk icon and still sings beautifully, demonstrating to all present "how it is done".  I'll never forget it.

 

Below is my good friend and radio promoter, Bill Wence.  He was at FAI with his beautiful wife Kathy.  Bill has been in radio and the music business (songwriter and musician) for over 30 years.  He has helped me to chart on Americana radio along with  Alison Krauss, John Gorka,The Civil Wars and T-Bone Burnett, the Dunwells, Buddy Miller, John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams and Mary Chapin Carpenter.  It is pretty amazing!  He's a real nice guy, too.

 

NEWS:

Tune in Monday, March 4th at noon for KRFC live at Lunch program on 88.9 FM radio.  Anna Leavitt will be joining me on cello.  We'll be playing songs from the new album and some old favorites. Go to www.krfcfm.org for live streaming if you are in a place and have time to do so. 

We will be playing Saturday March 9th from 7-9 PM at Miner Pickin in Idaho Springs with David East

and Thursday March 14th 7:30-9:00 PM at Swallow Hill cafe.  See schedule below for details and directions.  See you soon.

 

Blessings,

 

Mary Beth



PRESS

"DENVER (February 2014) – Denver singer-songwriter Mary Beth Cross has stepped onto the national folk-Americana stage with the release of her fourth CD “Beyond Good and Evil”, landing a top-five ranking on Airplay Direct, receiving positive reviews from critics around the world, and performing at major venues. “Last year was unforgettable, and 2014 looks to be even better,” said Cross, who is already working on her fifth album. My music comes from inspiration found in the beauty of nature and the human spirit. I work with all kinds of people, and I write songs to hopefully touch others and make them feel something.”"  Tim Wenger, Colorado Music Buzz Magazine

"Mary Beth Cross – Beyond Good And Evil (MBC Productions) Album Reviews ElmoreMagazine.com | March 13th, 2014 by Elmore Staff Beyond Good and Evil album coverThis is Mary Beth Cross’s fourth album, and it is surely her most mature and best. Hailing from Wisconsin, her art is steeped in Americana. This album of original compositions reflects the best of our pioneering spirit, the grit and determination of those who blazed a trail towards the West seeking, beauty, adventure, land, freedom and opportunity. This effort is meant to celebrate the best of that spirit and eschews the darker side of the American Manifest Destiny. Ms. Cross spins her tales in a fetching pure-tone soprano voice."  Robert Myers, Elmore Magazine

" 'Beyond Good and Evil' is a wonderful collaboration of fine instrumentalists and Mary Beth's vocals and songwriting. A pleasure and joy to listen to."  Chris McKhool, Sultans of Strings
