Event Description

Nobody picks it like Mary Flower! Flower’s immense fingerpicking 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.

An internationally known and award-winning picker, singer/songwriter and teacher, the Midwest native relocated from Denver to the vibrant Portland, Oregon music scene in in 2004. She continues to please crowds and critics at folk festivals and concert stages domestically and abroad, ones that include Merlefest, Kerrville, King Biscuit, Prairie Home Companion and the Calgary Folk Festival, among many.

A finalist in 2000 and 2002 at the National Fingerpicking Guitar Championship (Top 3 both years, and the only woman), a nominee in 2008 and 2012 for a Blues Foundation Blues Music Award, and a 2011 Portland Muddy Award winner, Flower embodies a luscious and lusty mix of rootsy, acoustic-blues guitar and vocal styles that span a number of idioms – from Piedmont to the Mississippi Delta, with stops in ragtime, swing, folk and hot jazz.

Bill Johnson has been playing blues for over 40 years. A master guitarist, musician, and vocalist, Bill has developed his own brand of laid-back, soul-thumping blues while living on Vancouver Island. Whether on his own, or performing with his band, his unique style and beautiful tone reveal a rare passion for the blues. A Juno nomination in 2012, and four Maple Blues award nominations have earned him a place among the countries best blues artists. From a slow burn to a blast of blues energy, his show is not to be missed. With every new town and performance comes many new amazed fans, as he works his way coast to coast.
