Raised around trees and rolling hills in a tiny mountain town in West Virginia, Mary Remsburg grew up a classically trained pianist who, in neighboring cities, consistently received double superior ratings during piano competitions and was frequently selected to perform on honors recitals. Taught piano by her mother in their farmhouse living room, Mary found her passion for music and continued to grow in her dedication throughout childhood. She was trained in both classical and jazz music throughout college and received a degree in music education.
While classical and jazz music continue to play an important role in Mary’s life, she maintains a deep connection to her Appalachian roots and the folk music tied to it. Mary ultimately shares her music because she hopes whoever listens will join her in finding the joys of everyday life. She is a firm believer in L.M. Montgomery’s quote, “All great things are wound up with all things little,” and she feels lucky to have been raised in an area where there was not a lot of distraction–just family, friends, music, and vast amounts of mountains and rivers to explore.
