A new spring concert series kicks off on Saturday, February 16 on a very high note with a double bill of two fantastic touring artists, Mary Flower and Anne Weiss. Guitarist and lap slide player Mary Flower is renowned for her uniquely personal vision of roots music that blends ragtime, acoustic blues and folk. She’s technically dazzling yet grounded in the down-to-earth simplicity of early 20th century American music. With nine albums out, she’s earned rave reviews for her warm contralto and dazzling instrumental mastery of the Piedmont blues style that takes most players a lifetime to hone.

Also appearing the same night, Anne Weiss performs music which combines contemporary folk, blues, funk, gospel with smatterings of classical phrasing and Latin rhythm. Weiss is known for her enormous bluesy voice, great guitar chops, and striking stage presence. Her lyrics are poetic, political, humorous, sensual, and full of characters and stories. Besides having four albums out, Weiss is an award-winning poet. She received the Allen Ginsberg Award for poems in her book called “Making Paper From Leaves.” More info at AnneWeiss.com
