Mary Flower’s immense finger picking guitar and lap-slide prowess is soulful and meter-perfect, a deft blend of the inventive, the dexterous and the mesmerizing.

Her supple honey-and-whiskey voice provides the perfect melodic accompaniment to each song’s story. Her acoustic-blues guitar and vocal styles span a number of idioms – from Piedmont to the Mississippi Delta, with stops in ragtime, swing, folk and hot jazz.
An internationally known and award-winning picker, singer/songwriter and teacher, Mary teaches seminars and plays at concert stages and folk festivals domestically and abroad, that include Merlefest, Kerrville, King Biscuit, Prairie Home Companion and the Vancouver Folk Festival. A finalist in 2000 and 2002 at the National Finger Picking Guitar Championship, a nominee in 2008, 2012 and 2016 for a Blues Foundation Blues Music Award, and many times a Cascade Blues Assn. Muddy Award winner, Flower’s 11 recordings show a deep command of and love for folk and blues string music.
