Flower, internationally known for her mastery of the Piedmont style of acoustic guitar, marries acoustic blues with touches of ragtime, folk, swing and jazz. She is considered a world class finger-style and lap slide player whose dedication to the art form is a vital contribution to America’s music.

In addition to being a 2011 Portland Mucky Award winner, Flower has10 recordings, including her last four for Memphis’ famed Yellow Dog Records, Bywater Dance, Instrumental Breakdown, Bridges and Misery Loves Company which Downbeat Magazine voted one of the best CD’s of 2012. Her most recent release, “When My Bluebird Sings” was voted one of the best albums of 2014.
