    BRIDGES is a tribute to folk-blues guitarist Mary Flower's newly adopted home town of Portland, Oregon. Using the best of the local blues community as her fellow musicians and choosing covers connected to the area (including the anti-war anthem "Portland Town"), BRIDGES is filled with the independence and openness of the Pacific Northwest as well as Flower's typically excellent acoustic blues guitar work. Highlights include "Columbia River Rag" and "When I Get Home, I'm Gonna Be Satisfied."

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (p.40) - "With various instrumentals showcasing her knockout, bass-string snapping, string-bending, ascending-up-the-neck passages and delicate fingers dancing merrily across the strings, Mary Flower is amazing."
    Living Blues (p.57) - "Flower uses her warm, unaffected contralto voice on nine of the numbers."
