Maura McKinney Mastro is a busy nightclub vocalist, who has just released a very folky album, Irish Roots. Her own roots are impeccable. She is the daughter of the IRA activist writer and retired Daily News columnist, Jack McKinney.
Her style is sheer and shiny, but her feelings are as sincere as if she couldn't sing a lick. All in all, this is a pretty collection includng one of my favorites, The Fields of Athenry. I will soon be singing this song, myself. After a few weeks, I shall claim that I wrote it. Irish Roots, the CD, is available at a nunber of venues, or you can buy it on line, www10.eWebcity.com/funburst
