At some point, you know, it's hard to carry a piano around...
Mary Beth Carty is a fascinating individual, a songwriter, an artist, and a multi-instrumental musician. She can be heard singing in four (4!) different languages on her new album, Crossing the Causeway. How did the diversity in the area she grew up contribute to her music? How did she get started playing accordion? What did her childhood smell like? You'll get the answers to these questions - as well as hear me list some names of a musical instrument that absolutely sound like fake words - by listening to our conversation.
