Mary Flower’s immense finger picking guitar and lap-slide prowess is soulful and meter-perfect, a deft blend of the inventive, the dexterous and the mesmerizing. Her supple honey-and-whiskey voice provides the perfect melodic accompaniment to each song’s story.

Tri States Public Radio invites you to celebrate the partnership of public radio with a cool serving of ice cream in the company of your fellow TSPR listeners and supporters. Weather permitting, we will be setting up a small area behind our studios at 320 W. University Dr. Come out and enjoy ice cream and some of your favorite toppings, drinks, the sounds of TSPR, and some fantastic weather (we hope...). But even if the weather decides not to cooperate, we'll move the party inside to our Vallillo/Holtz performance studio.
