Mary Kathleen Burke Mary Kathleen Burke, originally from Ireland but now firmly based in Scotland, has been described by Dr. Ian Green of Greentrax as "a brilliant talent". "I've been in the music business for more than 40 years," he said, "and I've not heard many like her. She's a
wonderfully gifted performer, and a natural musician with an absolutely gorgeous voice. I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that she is going to become a great star."

"Mary Kathleen Burke is, indeed, a wonderful talent. She is a truly gifted singer/songwriter who released her first album "A Song in her Heart" to great critical acclaim in February 2008. Mary sings from her heart. Her song "My Scotsman and Thee", with its tale of longing for home, going home but being in love with someone from another country, epitomises a common theme in folk music. Mary wrote this song when she was only nineteen years old, but it is still as fresh today.
Mary certainly manages to captivate audiences wherever she plays. Since the release of her debut album which was named album of the week on several Radio Stations both here and abroad Mary has supported well known artists such as Donnie Munro and the Finlay Mc Donald Band and Recently toured in Italy .She also presents her own Radio Show on Celtic Music Radio Glasgow
and has accumulated several regular listeners to her eclectic mix of music and live guests every week.Mary is available for a variety of venues and events, from theatres to festivals, both home and abroad.

of Scotland's newest music agency, Northbeat Agency
Started in November 2008 by Karin Ingram and Jacky Cooper, Northbeat's aim is to provide the best in live music from some of the top artists playing in Scotland, and to be an active and exceptional link between these artists and venues/promoters. We can cater for a wide range of venues from concert halls, theatres and arts centres of all sizes, to festivals and dance events, as well as smaller clubs and community halls. Our Dance Bands (and indeed some of our other artists) are available for weddings, parties, ceilidhs and corporate events. The Scottish Tradition encompasses many styles of dance including four that could be considered â€œSocial Dancingâ€ â€“ Scottish Country, Ceilidh, Old Time and Reel Party. These are quite different styles, requiring very different music, and it is extremely rare for a Scottish Dance Band to specialise in all of them, but four of our bands â€“ The Glencraig Band, Marian Andersonâ€™s Band, The Danelaw Band and Iain Cathcartâ€™s Scottish Dance Band â€“ do just that. In addition, the legendary Fergie MacDonald is widely known as â€œThe Ceilidh Kingâ€ with few able to match his expertise in that genre and the title of The Glenelvan Bandâ€™s debut CD, â€œReal Time for Old Timeâ€, shows where their musical hearts lie. All of our Dance Bands have broadcast for Radio Scotlandâ€™s â€œTake the Floorâ€ programme on numerous occasions, appeared on television, video and DVD and have released top-selling CDs. When booking one of Northbeatâ€™s Dance Bands for a function, whether it is a corporate event, party, wedding or dance, we will take all of your requirements into account and supply the band best suited for your function. All of the bands can work with or without a dance caller to help your guests join in with the dancing. Here is a comprehensive list of all our artists - Donnie Munro Band, GiveWay, Scocha, Alastair McDonald, Glencraig Scottish Dance Band, Fergie MacDonald Ceilidh Band, Mary Kathleen Burke, Marian Anderson Scottish Dance Band, Craig Jeffrey, Danelaw Dance Band, Iain Cathcart Scottish Dance Band, Fiona MacKenzie, Glenelvan Scottish Dance Band, Donald Black (and Malcolm Jones), Kevin Montgomery and Duncan McCrone Please email in the first instance to email@example.com.
