Mari Mack at Saylor’s Restaurant

Mari Mack has been doing a few fundraisers for the Plant Studios on Monday nights here at Saylor’s Restaurant and Bar. Artsboretum is her organization that is dedicated to this task. In addition, Artsboretum’s mission is to “preserve and celebrate our rich legacy and cultivate the arts to plant the seeds of change.” One half of the proceeds from these performances go to Artsboretum.

Aside from that, one can get a very nice meal here at Saylor’s and enjoy the music during these March Monday performances. Also there will be music here on Friday and Saturdays until May.

Tonight Mari Mack is accompanied by Pat Duffy on Bass and Billy Duffy on guitar. The latter two being apparently related seems to aid in the cohesion of their music.

It was enchanting to hear Mari sing Reconsider Baby by Lowell Fulsom, a song that has been covered by many of the greats including Eric Clapton. Another song that really stood out was People Get Ready, Curtis Mayfield’s masterpiece made famous by the Impressions back in 1965. Mari also gave us some renditions of her original songs which can only be described as sweet. When she sang Steve Winwood’s Can’t Find my way home, the place quietened down as the diners laid down their utensils and turned their heads toward the trio. Most enjoyable!
