Listed in Florida Keys Musicians
The first thing one notices about Mary Spear is her very own unique style of dress and her stage decoration, rooted in the 60s, but modern and creative at the same time. Next, you hear her music, her skilled guitar riffs and that voice which carries you backwards, forwards and with the angels in the clouds, whether she is singing vintage Joni Mitchell tunes, standards, folk, Beatles or the Dead: rock and roll, jazz or reggae. Both the music and the style are a part of Mary’s immense talent and unique artistry.
Originally from the Midwest, Mary Spear has been a mainstay of the Key West music scene since she arrived on the island, more than thirty years ago. She’s played in almost every venue in Key West, at one time or another and with almost every musician on the island as well as with nationally known greats like Buddy MILES EXPRESS, both in Key West and on tour.She has opened the show for 40,000 people in Mole Lake Wisconsin played the 30 year anniversary of Woodstock on Yasgars farm as well as played with Bohemiam Swingers the Deadbeats, recently with FISH OUT OF WATER all original funk hip hop rocking reggae.
