Mary Flower is renowned for a 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 eight albums under her belt, Flower has earned rave reviews from critics and audiences alike for her unassuming vocals, but it’s her instrumental skill, a mastery of the difficult Piedmont blues guitar, that takes most players a lifetime to hone… for which Flower is most celebrated.
