Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase Mary Dailey

It was "love at first sound" for Mary Dailey when she encountered traditional folk music while volunteering at the Appalachian South Folklife Center in southern West Virginia. Like the mountain people, the songs were at the same time earthy and ethereal, straight-forward and full of soul--qualities Mary calls "realness." And the Celtic roots of these songs resonated deeply because of her own Irish ancestry. This soul connection and the influence of writers such as Woody Guthrie, whose songs moved hearts and changed minds, have inspired Mary's own songcraft, "not to become famous or rich, just to change the world!"
