QuaranTunes rides again in Lincoln City

Guitar player Mary Flower, accompanied by the BBQ Boys, will perform at the Lincoln City Cultural Center at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24. A limited number of people can attend the concert, and others can enjoy the performance through a live feed online.

Rescheduled concert set for Oct. 24

LINCOLN CITY – Acoustic Guitar magazine says: “There are few musicians in the genre bringing as much creative spark and low-key mojo” as Mary Flower. A writer for Living Blues opined that Flower “marries acoustic blues with touches of ragtime, folk, and jazz … the interplay is always interesting, often provocative, and sometimes breathtaking.”

The Lincoln City Cultural Center will present guitarist Mary Flower, who will perform with the BBQ Boys — aka a “jug band sans the jug” — live and in-person at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24. 

This three-set concert, originally scheduled for Sept. 9, was postponed by the Echo Mountain Complex fire. All tickets for the original date will be honored, and a few more are still available. To get yours, head to lincolncityculturalcenter.thundertix.com.

About the artists

Mary Flower’s 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.
