Before a concert at the Magnolia House March 10, Blues musician Mary Flower will stop by Tell Us A Tale for some conversation and live music. She will hopefully play a few pieces from her latest release, Misery Loves Company.
Hailing from Portland, Oregon, guitarist and lap slide player Mary Flower is renowned for her uniquely personal vision of roots music that blends ragtime, acoustic blues and folk – technically dazzling yet grounded in the down-to-earth simplicity of early 20th century American music.
With nine albums to her name, this Yellow Dog Records recording artist has earned rave reviews from critics and audiences alike for her instrumental skill – a mastery of the Piedmont blues style that takes most players a lifetime to hone – for which Flower is most celebrated.
Her performances around the world include Merlefest, Prairie Home Companion and the Winnipeg Folk Festival to name a few. A seasoned teacher, Mary has been on staff at many guitar workshops including Fur Peace Ranch, Centrum Blues Festival, Swannanoa and the Augusta Heritage Center.
