An Evening of Songwriters Featuring: Dylan Hicks, Molly Maher, Mary Bue and Marvelty $10
Sunday, May 20, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Dylan Hicks is a musician and writer. His acclaimed fifth album, Ad Out, was produced by John Munson and features eleven tuneful, character-driven songs smartly arranged around Hicks’s piano. He’s also the author of two novels, Amateurs and Boarded Windows, and has written journalism, criticism, essays, and word puzzles for the New York Times, the Village Voice, Slate, the New England Review, the Paris Review Daily, and many other publications.
Molly Maher is the sort of musician you see once and never forget. An incomparable singer and songwriter with compelling depth and soul and cutting lyrics draws from the deep roots of Americana music. She writes songs that ring true. Her singing is a ﬁne balance of deep and soulful, somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Raitt. Twangy and lament-filled spirit, guitar driven country-folk-jam with a blues swagger.
Mary Bue is an indie musician and yoga studio owner based in Minneapolis. A prolific songwriter with 7 albums under her belt, Mary’s music touches upon archetypal themes of the human condition: love, loss, triumph, dreams, and the natural world. A longtime student of yoga and psychology since her early teens, Mary weaves sacred subject matter into her songs with inquiries into the spirit, the seeking of deeper levels of consciousness, and deep concern for the environment all mixed into her sometimes crass, real-world hue. Mary recently opened Imbue Yoga in South Minneapolis – an intimate, beginner friendly studio featuring many lineages of yoga – quite the “multi-passionate entrepreneur.” For the early half of 2017 Mary was an Artist in Residence at the Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, NM – spending time creating in solitude, along the Rio Grande river gorge and Sangre de Cristo mountains. She released her 7th project The Majesty of Beasts in May 2017 which landed on 2017’s Best of Minnesota Music lists for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and #3 in the City Pages. Mary’s long-time support of PAVSA (Program for Aid to Victims of Sexual Assault) as well as the release of this EP was also recognized in November, honoring Mary with 2017 Community Ally of the Year.
