Mary Bue (1:45pm — 2:30pm)

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.  

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, honoring Mary with 2017 Community Ally of the Year.
