Welcome to my website. Lots of information here about my music, writing, and craft.

I do hope you and yours are doing OK as we get through these COVID days. Please stay safe.

MUSIC

I am starting to play out again (check my calendar) but you can always listen to my music: There are cuts from my five CDs on my music page: "Hallelujah! Amen." my all-gospel CD and the other four which are a romp around the seasons. "Sweet Mimosa" (summer), "Indian Summer" (autumn), "Deep December Dreams" (winter), and "Spring: The Wind's Story."  It took me 15 years to complete this cycle: from 2002 to 2017!! In addition, the St. Matthew's Women's Singing Circle, which I lead, has three CDs out: "How Can I Keep from Singing," a Christmas CD called "Venite Adoremus," and "Homecoming."

WRITING

I have been spending my time writing, during this shelter in place days, not so much songs, but some non-fiction/memoir kind of stuff. I've finished a second installment of chicken stories ("more Little Chicken Stories"), a retrospective of the St. Matthew's Faith & Arts Series which I coordinated for ten years, and have finished up a memoir about Somethyme, the restaurant I co-founded in 1973 entitled "1104 Broad Street." My books Little Chicken Stories, more Little Chicken Stories, Saving Time, and 1104 Broad Street are available from the publishing site lulu.com. Check them out!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is a link to my lulu site on products (CDs, handwork, book) page and here.

My children's poem & picture book Saving Time, a fable is very special to me as my mom painted the watercolor backgrounds that I used to create collages to go along with my poem.

CRAFT

Get in touch with me if you are interested in any of my crafts: embroidered baby blankets, napkins, quilted potholders, and more. I still vend at the Chapel Hill Farmers Market during the holiday season. The Hillsborough Arts Council Gallery and Gift Shop also stocks my potholders.

This website is now set up so that you can purchase CDs (real or digital) and/or individual songs. Thanks for visiting. If you want to contact me, send me an email at maryrocap@maryrocap.com.

All the best,

Mary
