Bio: Mary Catherine D’Arcy is from Conyers, Georgia. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English from The University of Georgia and a law degree from Mississippi College School of Law in Jackson, Mississippi.
About her time in Mississippi, Mary Catherine says, “So many amazingly talented writers and musicians are Mississippians. You’ve got William Faulker and Eudora Welty. You’ve got B.B. and Albert King, Muddy Waters, Sam Cooke, Robert Johnson, and Willie Dixon. If you get a chance, go to Rosedale, Greenwood, Vicksburg, and Clarksdale, and visit the monuments and museums dedicated to these people. Luther Dickinson is from Mississippi, and so is George McConnell. It’s a cradle of creativity. It’s also haunted. ”
Mary Catherine has contributed to Honest Tune since 2008, covering performances by Yonder Mountain String Band, The String Cheese Incident, David Grisman, and Railroad Earth.
