Selected Reviews:
One of the most evocative performers of clawhammer (drop-thumb) banjo in the modern age, Maria brings subtle sophistication to this ancient technique. . . What makes this recording such a standout is the consistently high level of musicianship on every track. . . Roots music fans have much to celebrate with this CD. This is roots music, indeed, and Celebration proves that roots can grow beautiful blooms.

CD & radio appearance Review Dec 10, 2009
Maria’s new CD "Celebration" is a wonderful mix of old time music and more modern songs played in the old time style. The original title track shows that it is possible to write a good old time song these days. The song selection, performance and recording production are all top notch and I'll be playing the CD regularly on my show for some time.

Maria is one of those rare performers who really inhabits the stage. She is a splendid instrumentalist — in particular she is a virtuoso clawhammer banjo player and a great singer. Authentic Quebecois songs and old time banjo music are tied together by Maria's sly and engaging wit. Her unique ability to make traditional material feel contemporary and accessible along with her sparkling stage presence makes Maria's performances a compelling and memorable experience.
