Concerts - Educational and Fun!
Mary Kay is a solo artist, singing and playing the Celtic harp, along with lively tin whistle and Irish flute tunes. She performs for all types of audiences, with music from Ireland, Scotland, and America from the past three centuries.
Between songs, Mary Kay lightens the mood with humor and stories, explaining traditional music and instruments in a casual, witty, and fun performance that appeals to audiences of all ages.
Mary Kay has performed in band shells, concert halls, restaurants, libraries, gardens, retirement facilities, trolleys, colonial houses, churches and church halls, festivals, and folk clubs. And that's with the traditionally elegant gown, the casual outdoor look, a colonial outfit - or once, the strolling purple-haired whistle-playing friendly witch.
