Part of the 6th Annual
WOLFE ISLAND GARDEN PARTY
a celebration of Culture and Agriculture
June 8 – 18, 2023
“Americana Queen” (Vice Noisey) Mary Bragg, heralded by Rolling Stone and NPR for her “gorgeously crafted and executed songs,” just released her self-titled album, which No Depression hailed as a “personal and powerful set featuring a courageous plumb line.”
Originally from Swainsboro, Georgia, the singer-songwriter-producer has produced albums for Grace Pettis, Natalie Price, Jackson Emmer, and Alicia Stockman, among others, in addition to her own recent effort.
Praised by the World Café for her “refined, sumptuously melancholy take on Southern storytelling,” Bragg’s been exploring love and its complications for much of her career now, wrestling with longing, desire, heartbreak, and insecurity across a string of widely lauded albums. NPR dubbed her breakout 2017 release, Lucky Strike, one of the year’s best, while her 2019 follow-up, Violets as Camouflage, earned similar raves, with the Nashville Scene calling it “magnificent” and Rolling Stone hailing its mix of “classic country twang and “gentle chamber-pop.” Bragg toured the records extensively, playing headline and festival dates to ever-growing audiences across the US and Europe.
