5.10 GUEST – Maria Dunn

Maria was born in Scotland, but moved as a child with her family to Canada. She has been described as “an arrestingly powerful singer-songwriter who writes great historical and social commentary.” Her music blends Celtic folk with North American bluegrass and country influences.

A true preserver of the spirit of folk music, Maria is often compared to Woody Guthrie for her keen social awareness and her unvarnished songs about the lives of working men and women.

Irish singer Fil Campbell and her percussionist husband Tom McFarland, have been playing as a duo since the early 90s.  The combination of vocals, guitar and percussion, a mix of original and traditional songs with lots of choruses and the Irish gift of chat and craic, has brought them around the world many times.
