CD Release and Frivolity!

Mary is releasing her new CD, Lucy’s Fling!

Please join her for this joyous occasion. Guest vocalist, Sue Medley, cellist Joride Robinson and of course Paul Keim on guitars. Gift basket draws for pre-purchased tickets and of course – loads of frivolity! Tickets available at Long & McQuade & Rosewood Fitness – Courtenay, Blue Heron Boooks – Comox, The Music Plant – Campbell River, or via contacting me – Mary Murphy. 15.00 in advance – 20.00 at the door. Kitchen will be presided over by Craig Freeman.

The Little Red Church is a lovely venue with a warm atmosphere. Mary will have the stage decorated in her usual colourful style. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

These new songs have a unique design. Mary has taken many traditional melodies and written lyrics with a two returning characters. There are also a few traditional songs as well as a song in the Scottish language (for all you out there with Scottish roots).

Sue Medley will be the featured guest vocalist. Though she and Mary have very different musical backgrounds, their voices blend as though fairy dust has been sprinkled over them.

Cellist Jordie Robinson will be adding his finesse on cello for several pieces and is a player on the new CD.

Of course, Paul Keim, fabulous guitarist, will be on all manner of guitars and was the producer of this release. This was recorded at Paul and Mary’s recording studio, Dove Creek Recording Studio.

Lecture Series - Stan Hagen Theatre

Mary will be part of a lecture series at the Stan Hagen Theatre.

The Alchemy of Words – A Journey into the Psyche of an Irish Writer

In Irish culture, storytelling, in all forms, stems from the absolute necessity to communicate. This lecture will touch on several aspects of the Irish psyche by ‘literally’ sharing my own upbringing, observations, journey and quest to slake a readers thirst for the Irish experience. The expression ‘gift of the gab’ is well known, and this truism manifests prolifically in Irish writers.

I invite you to come experience it first hand. Must be enrolled HERE to attend.

Contact: Elizabeth 250- 339-9532 for further info.
