The Mary Stokes Band has performed with BB King, Fats Domino, John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Hubert Sumlin, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Lowell Fulson, Johnny Copeland, Jeff Healey, Rory Gallagher, Carey Bell, Lurrie Bell, Pinetop Perkins, Georgie Fame, Louisiana Red, Lefty Dizz, John Campbell, U.P.

I remember seeing posters for Mary's gigs back in the late 80s and early 90s. Her husband Brian Palm is a formidable artist and harmonica player. We have shared the stage on many occasions with Whole Lotta Zep and I love them both dearly.
They are both incredible musicians and beautiful people. I feel very lucky to call them friends. I hope you like our podcast. Please like and subscribe and if you have any feedback feel free to email me at briefencounterpodcast@gmail.com. x
