Mary Christine Hargreaves: MUSIC

All originals- Click Here for CD description.

(c)(p) 2014)

A brand new album, "Set O'Wheels" written by Mary Christine Hargreaves and produced by Ukelady Music Productions, has just been released. The entire collection of original songs is related to traveling and was inspired by life and the beauty of Maine.


It's an easy listening / upbeat folk album for the 'traveler at heart' as well. While listening in your comfy chairs or cars, you can cruise along Maine's countryside, taking in miles of sun, rain, joy, soul, freedom, friendship, longing for home, dusty roads, and peaceful streams. Folk, jazz, Americana, and bluesy melodies are sung on guitar, ukulele, piano, strings and drums with special guest accompanists Heather Pierson, Nate Towne, Lindsey Montana, Bob Wallace, Rusty Wiltjer, Jeff Rojo, and Mary's husband Steve Hargreaves. Mastering was done by Ted St. Pierre at The Outlook in Bethel, Maine.
 

It took four years for Mary to produce this collection while experiencing and learning the huge realm of self recording, engineering, and publishing.  Many mentors are to be credited for their input including her son and guide Roy, also Al, Terry, Jack, Paul, and Jackie of the Tucker's Music Pub music workshops. The album design came together with the talents of her daughter Crystal Hersom, son Jacob, and husband Steve. The songs came from an inner place.
"My biggest inspiration was my mom, who lived with longterm rheumatoid arthritis.  In her honor, a portion of proceeds from this new CD benefits the Arthritis National Research Foundation."
