Cape Cod’s Ukulele Man, Tim Sweeney from Orleans, MA has entertained crowds around the world from New York to Chicago, Paris, Germany, Nova Scotia and beyond with his smooth style and soulful voice.

Tim Sweeney is a polished, passionate virtuoso performer. He is a multi-instrumentalist, whose purchase of a ukulele and a chord chart in the summer of 2003 was a musical life-changing experience. Quickly discovering the compatibility between his voice, the ukulele and the songs of the Great American Songbook, Tim shifted his focus, discovered his passion, and is enjoying an exciting resurgent music career.

In 2008, he was a featured performer at the New York Uke Fest, Chicago’s Windy City Uke Fest and the European Ukulele Festival in Gross-Umstadt, Germany.

In the summer 0f 2009 he performed at both the Paris Uke Fest and the Nerac Uke Fest in France. Then in October at the (1st) Columbia (MD) Ukulele Festival with Dan Scanlan. Then the 3rd International Ukulele Ceilidh in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. Tim was joined onstage by Chalmers Doane and James Hill!!!

A vocalist first, he is a versatile song stylist that can hold his own singing jazz, swing, folk and rock ‘n’ roll. In addition to the marvelous songs of the 1930s and 40s, Tim’s repertoire includes popular standards of the 50s and 60s, and many songs that he has always wanted to sing, which span decades and musical genres. A charismatic performer, he knows how to engage a crowd and has been slowly adding new original material to the set list.

He released his first ukulele CD, ”New Uke State of Mind” in 2007 to excellent reviews. He hopes to have a new CD ready sometime this spring, with new original material that he debuted at the festivals in France and in Nova Scotia.

Tim Sweeney is very excited that his music is being played on 7522 Radio.

Mary Beth Cross Releases ”Feels Like Home” EP On 7522 Radio

2,050 views

”Feels Like Home” begins by welcoming you in from the rain the warmth of the hearth with the Paul Simon classic ”Kathy’s Song”.  Before you know it, the rugs are rolled up and a dance floor is cleared.  Mary Beth takes listeners to her grandparent’s dairy farm back in the 1940’s with ”Threshing Time”, a tune she co-wrote with her 85 year old father.  Airing fears, worry and concern is still a part of family gatherings.  The burdens are shared and then released with Gary White’s ”Long, Long Time”. Mary Beth takes the Linda Rondstadt cover and places it in a bluegrass arrangement, giving it new breath.  She then leads you slowly into the wee hours of the evening (to the bedroom) with ”The Medley” and concludes with an original ditty welcoming the morning and the gift of a new day with ”Cottonwood Creek”.

Mary Beth Cross is an award winning singer, songwriter and musician.  Her music is a soulful, intimate acoustic mix of original and classic tunes.  Her new EP titled ”Feels Like Home” incorporates traditional Bluegrass instruments into her arrangements.  Mary Beth’s originals are inspired by the stories of her family, the forests and farms of her Wisconsin upbringing, and Colorado, where she makes her home.
