With her warm contralto and dazzling skills as an instrumentalist and arranger, Mary Flower has cemented her status as one of the most dynamic performers on the acoustic blues circuit. Flower is deep in the pocket of the country blues and there are few musicians in the genre bringing as much creative spark and low-key mojo to this century-old music.

Fall 2015

The leaves in Portland are beginning to fall. The CBA’s Muddy Awards are upon us again and I’m honored to be nominated once more in the acoustic guitar category as well as best national CD (The Ragpicker String Band).
Looking forward to being back in Denver for some reunion shows w/old music partners Randy Handley and Katy Moffatt in November. Then back home for a few concerts with the BBQ Boys. There is much to be thankful for as we head into Thanksgiving!

CBA Muddy Awards

I’m again honored to be nominated for “best acoustic guitar” at the Annual Muddy Awards, Melody Ballroom, Nov 5th at 6:30 PM.  I’ll be playing on stage after the ceremony with Dave Fleschner and Alan Hager.

The Ragpicker String Band

Mandolinist Rich DelGrosso, Guitarist Mary Flower and multi-instrumentalist Martin Grosswendt have earned steady streams of praise for their outstanding string skills. They strum and pick up a storm on their debut album together as the Ragpicker String Band — but it's their tight trio harmonies that especially dazzle. The acoustic dream team summons the spirits of everyone from the Mississippi Sheiks to Kweskin and Crumb with their vibrant spin on prewar folk-blues. Buy now.
