Live Music Performance from Trevor & Mary

Taste of Canterbury presents a Roots Rock & Country Crooning Live Music Performance with Trevor McSpadden and Mary Cutrufello. These artists have walked wildly different musical paths, but have both been guided by their time honky tonking in Texas in the early 90s. For Trevor, it was as a kid on the dance floor, mystified by a good band keeping the two-steppers spinning. For Mary, it was as a guitar-slinging, fire-spitting bandleader catapulted to nationwide acclaim. Serendipitously, their two paths have converged in St. Paul where they make a potent musical combo of Rock & Country.
