Mary McBride and her band have released four albums – “Everything Seemed Alright,” “By Any Other Name,” “Every Day Is a Holiday,” and “The Way Home.” In the past year, Mary and her band have performed in the US, Europe, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Pakistan, Laos, Vietnam, Taiwan, Afghanistan, Italy, Albania and Algeria.

Mary has most recently been touring as a cultural ambassador for the U.S. State Department, for which she is also developing versions of the “Home Tour,” which she founded to provide live music concerts for underserved communities.

Mary is the founder of the Home Tour, which brings musical concerts to the homes of people who otherwise would not have access to live music. The Home Tour travels throughout the U.S. and abroad to “places people call home,” including facilities such as long-term health care centers, homeless shelters, orphanages, prisons, homes in supported-housing communities, homes for people living with HIV/AIDS, homes for disabled veterans returning from service; and homes for people living with mental and physical disabilities.
