Michael has since become fascinated with the roots of American music,  from the minstrel shows  after the Civil War to the protest music of the 1960s. “Folk & Acoustic Music”  also features all types of folk music, from bluegrass, blues, old-time,  gospel, to contemporary singer/songwriter Americana music .  The show also features  local and nationally touring musicians with  real-time  studio  performances

Mean Mary singing live "I've Been Down"

Feb 6, 2011

“Mean” Mary James, youngest of six children, was born in Geneva, Alabama, though her family lived in Florida, a couple miles below the Alabama line. Her mom (author, Jean James) and dad (WWII veteran, William James) lived a very nomadic lifestyle. On one occasion they packed up the family (Mary was four at the time) and moved from Florida to North Minnesota, near the Canadian border, to rough it in the wilds. more at  www.maryjamesband.com
