The stage was set, the talent was booked and the only thing missing was the artist to play. Mary Lou Lord, busker extraordinaire was supposed to be onstage but was missing. So it was for OnlineTV.com broadcast of the CMJ Music Marathon back in 2000.
While Mary Lou Lord appeared to be late, she was actually working the NYC subway system for all it was worth busking in the West 4th Street station. She was making so much money she wanted to bow out of her appearance at the CMJ festival! But reason prevailed as well as the many fans waiting at the Acme Underground for one of the most talented singer songwriters of the day.
In later years Mary Lou started to suffer from a rare vocal cord affliction called spasmodic dysphonia and her singing and busking days became history. In that vein this video recording of her work, as a prime solo artist is precious history.
