Maria Fairchild's newest CD "Appalachian Diaries" is a unique collaboration with Long Island guitar legend Kerry Kearney and is available to purchase online and at upcoming shows.

With their new project, Maria and Kerry are true to the tradition while bringing their own special style to the recording. It's a wonderful CD!

Maria Fairchild's latest solo CD "Celebration" is available at CD Baby.

I first listened to this CD while driving from NY to Pennsylvania. After playing it through four times I still wanted to hear more. If you’re a fan of old time Clawhammer banjo then this is a must have CD! Maria’s banjo playing is flawless, original and tasteful. Every tune is well crafted into an elegant arrangement that demonstrates the best of this genre. Button accordion and old time banjo are awesome together – who knew? Jethro Tull’s Mother Goose as an instrumental Clawhammer piece? – that works too and is one of my favorite tracks! Maria’s voice is wonderful and is complimented well by her banjo playing. Even on the vocal tracks the banjo shines through nicely in the mix. Can’t wait for the next CD!
