Lucky Mud has a brand new CD! Thirteen original songs by Maggie and Mike McKinney. It's called Lucky 13, and is now available through this website or at CD Baby - http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/luckymud11 Lucky 13 "This local husband-wife folk duo seems to always have new music up their sleeves. Their newest full-length album is a mix of folky, southern-inspired whimsical tunes like “Blackberry Jelly” and stories about people who didn’t quite do right (“Amber Alert”). But it’s the two ballads that steal the spotlight with emotional intimacy and authenticity." - Nikki Hedrick Marvin Holdman added three Lucky Mud songs to Youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eX5hAnlLqw&list=TLr43NZ1EgZcIyODA5MjAxNQ We would love to hear what you think of them. -Maggie and Mike All Lucky Mud CDs and songs can be heard here on the website, and purchased from CD Baby.
." "Lucky Mud is from the deeper side of Folk Music. The couple have a soulful connection that is palpable." -EARBUZZ "
This folk duo whips up 14 songs on the topics of love, loss and longing on their CD Into the Night. With a penchant for storytelling, the pair is out to revive a bare bones approach to traditional American folk music. Highlights include “All I Know”—as the duo’s harmonies lead the way through the chorus and lyrics—to the surprisingly dark “Who Am I?” - Nikki Hedrick/ Beachcomber Magazine 30A
