Mary Beth Cross to Celebrate Release of 'Feels Like Home' EP with Denver Concert
DENVER (April 2016) – Award-winning folk-bluegrass-Americana artist Mary Beth Cross will celebrate the release of her new bluegrass-Americana EP, "Feels Like Home", with a concert and meet-and-greet from 3-5 p.m. May 15 (Sunday) at Baur's Restaurant, 1512 Curtis St. in Denver.
Cross's latest project celebrates the importance of home in the lives of average, everyday Americans. The eight-song EP features originals, as well as classics written and/or performed by legendary artists such as Paul Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Garry White, Van Morrison, George Gershwin, and Dubose Heyward.
The artist will be joined on stage by National Flat-Picking Champion and Grant Farm Band founding member Tyler Grant, Grant Farm Band bassist Adrian Engfer, banjoist George Guthrie, mandolinist Jack Dunlevie, and fiddler Chuck Hugenberg. Admission is free.
The EP is dedicated to her late nephew, Christopher Chmiel, who died unexpectedly in 2015. "My latest project includes cover songs that are part of the tapestry of my upbringing in Wisconsin, as well as originals that reflect my current home in Colorado," said Cross, whose last project, "Beyond Good and Evil", was named "2014 Folk-Country CD of the Year" by the National Traditional Country Music Association.
Among the covers is "Kathy's Song", a classic written and recorded by folk-pop legend Paul Simon.
