"...by now we all know that East Coast music encompasses more than traditional Celtic music. A case in point is St. John's native Mary Barry, who writes and sings songs in two languages spanning jazz, blues, roots, country, cabaret, chanson, and worldbeat...with a versatile, expressive voice that strikes to the heart of whatever style of song she is performing."
