Release date for Maura's new CD, NAKED WITH FRIENDS.

While she did wear clothes during most of the recording sessions, the title of the album refers to the fact that it contains only voices, no instruments. The list of guest artists is long and eclectic: Dolly Parton, Mary Black, Alison Krauss, Kate Rusby, Jerry Douglas, Paul Brady, Tim O'Brien and many other friends.

Song selection shows Maura's always broad taste, including songs by great contemporary writers, including Elvis Costello, Cheryl Wheeler and Janis Ian, to traditional tunes in Irish.

For the first time, Maura took a co-producer credit, collaborating with the multi-Grammy-winning, multi-talented Gary Paczosa, who's worked with John Prine, Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek, Tim O'Brien and many others. The project was recorded over two years in Nashville and Dublin.
