My name is Martha Burns. I sing old songs -- mountain ballads, cowboy songs, comic ditties and heart songs -- songs that transport you to other places and other times. I've been singing and playing American folk music for over forty years. I've performed at folk clubs and festivals throughout the United States and abroad. Now, I'm making my first solo album.

Charlie Pilzer, of AirShow Mastering, is producing the album. He's a Grammy-award-winning recording engineer who specializes in folk music. All I need is YOUR HELP.

Want to hear more of my singing? Here's a video you might enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoIOlrWda6c
