Mary Flower: Bridges

Mary Flower: Bridges
Title: Bridges
Label: Yellow Dog Records

Mary Flower's newest studio album, Bridges, is another chapter in the acoustic guitarist's narrative of the diversity of American roots music, deftly melding ragtime, country blues, swing, folk styles, and hot jazz through the mastery of her fingerpicked and lap-style guitar playing. It's also a love letter of sorts to her adoptive home town of Portland, OR - the "bridges" of the title allude to the many crossings of the Willamette River that give the city it's unique character, as well as metaphorically referencing the connections to many different musical genres that give Mary's distinctive sound it's own unique character. As Terry Currier, owner of indie-music cornerstone Music Millennium, summarizes in the album's liner notes, "Throughout her career, Mary has brought her own roots and blues sensibility to a wide variety of genres. Bridges is a unique, only-in-Portland blend that could only have been created by the versatile Mary Flower."
