Mary Boyes

Mary Boyes got the “the jazz bug” early in life and has been working on her craft for several years. She loves singin’ and swingin’ with the band and has appeared in local jazz festivals, restaurants and special events. She is very honoured to be a part of the 2017 Listening Room YYC series.

What is your wish for 2017?
A different American leader!

Which musical instrument reflects your personality the most?
This is a difficult question but for versatility, the Piano, as it is my favourite instrument.

If you could have coffee with anyone, who would it be?
Ella Fitzgerald for some girl talk.

If you were a food, what would you be and why?
Something plant-based that is sustainable; like an apple which has a seed that can regenerate.

What is something you couldn’t go without?
Friends and family, but especially my children.
