Mary Bue is going to be performing at Icehouse for a very special send off party with her friends Alan Sparhawk and Molly Maher on January 14. Tickets are still available HERE
WHY? From January 24th to April 18th 2017, Minneapolis-based songwriter Mary Bue has been given an incredible gift: an Artist in Residence award at the The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico, a residency program that fosters and encourages creative talents in Taos. For three months, Ms. Bue will be given time and space to write music, paint, and otherwise create as her heart desires, unencumbered from the daily work life and distractions in her Minneapolis home!
An accomplished recording artist and touring musician, Mary’s 6 studio albums manage to capture her electrifying stage presence. Mary’s last two albums and her new EP (to be released in May 2017) were 100% fan-funded via Kickstarter. She has been awarded the “Escape to Create” Artist in Residence in Seaside, FL, and the Big Cypress Nature Preserve Artist in Residence in Ochopee, FL and in January 2017 a 3 month artist residency at the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, NM.
2015’s “Holy Bones” was deemed “Highly recommended” by the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Mary moved to Minneapolis in May 2016 to open her yoga studio Imbue Yoga which she currently manages & teaches with 5 other instructors (including Molly Maher – also on the bill!), trains for half marathons, eats delicious vegan food and writes voraciously.
