Mary Jane has miles to go until she returns to her part of the world though since before the concert she will travel to Glasgow to give a concert and workshops for the Scottish Arts Council. Then she is off to Austin, Texas to participate in a series of showcases during the prestigious North American Folk Alliance.
In December Mary Jane gave an extraordinarily emotional concert at the Glenn Gould Studio, with Kiran Ahluwalia (East Meets East), that united two very distinct Eastern cultures. These two new musical friends then delighted a full house with a spirited performance during the first annual Canadian Folk Music Awards at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa.
