Welcome to the Mary Hopkin International Site!
The latest worldwide Mary Hopkin News.
Obviously this Mary Hopkin International Site is not just about her songs recorded between 1968 and 1972 at The Beatles record label Apple. The periods before and after this well-known period of Mary's life are extensively looked into. Just one click on this site's button CD Discography and it will become clear to everybody that over the last 40 years Mary really has been and still is on top !!!
She made a series of Special Guest appearances during the Chieftains Tour, with a grand finale in London at the Royal Albert Hall in May of 1999. Together with Benny Gallagher she did a concert in the month of August 1999 during the Largs Viking Festival in Scotland. In 2000 she starred in a S4C TV-documentary "Mary Hopkin" in which she did a duet with Davey Crockett, singing The Crocketts hit single "Chicken vs. Macho" from the album "The Great Brain Robbery". Being a tremendous success the song was released on CD-single. In 2001 she played a small part in Sara Sugarman's movie "Very Annie Mary". And last but most certainly not least in April 2002 Mary contributed 2 songs to the BBC 1 television-show "Billy Connolly's World Tour of England, Ireland and Wales".
There was a new CD-release in 2005: 'Live at the Royal Festival Hall 1972'. It contains a live concert - which has never been released before - of Mary's final period with Apple Records.
This was soon followed by 3 other CD's: 'Valentine' (2007), 'Recollections' (2008) and 'Now and Then' (2009). This trilogy contains new tracks - again they have never been released before - made between 1972 till 1981.
Both CD's 'You Look Familiar' (2010) and 'Painting by Numbers' (2013) contain new songs. 2020 saw the release of 'Another Road'.
We are looking forward to the release of 'A Christmas Chorale' (due mid-November), which will include a remixed version of 'Iesu Faban' and eleven other beautiful and lesser-known Christmas carols, sung in English and Welsh, led by Mary and accompanied by Jessica Lee Morgan and Morgan Visconti.
