Harvest emanated from The Ventures Showband and though Mary Lou was marketed as a 'teen country sensation', she was more at home with pop and standards. If you would like to write a piece about Harvest, if you can fill any of the spaces in the line-up, if you were a member of the band or if you have a different photo to those on this page, please let us know by clicking on the Contact button below.

When Colm Hughes left to join Paddy Cole's Superband, Harvest were taken over by Connie Lynch.
The line-up showed some changes in personnel and was reduced to a 5-piece plus Mary Lou.

After Mary-Lou, Helen McCaffrey fronted Harvest. The tailor was released with a caution!
