Mare Wakefield: Mare Wakefield:  “Daddy was a seeker,” says Mare Wakefield. “Eventually he became a Salvationist minister. Mama was a gypsy, loving nothing more than a long, clear stretch of open highway.”  Mare was born with wanderlust embedded in her DNA, and lived in 8 different places by the time she was 10 years old. “It was a roller-coaster way to grow up, but my brother and I learned to fit in fast,” she says. “We had our rural Wisconsin accents down in two weeks flat. And eighteen months later we were drawling like native Texans.” Versatility and love for travel is evident in Mare's music. Listeners roam through Arizona deserts, Oklahoma oil fields and South Dakota plains, with side-trips to ancient Babylon and the streets of Amsterdam. The journeys go inward too, exploring hope and heartbreak, and the occasional whiskey-soaked barroom brawl. Story and song are woven seamlessly together by Mare’s intimate delivery and she has been honored by the International Songwriting Competition and the Great American Song Contest among others, and this year she was a finalist at Kerrville Folk Festival's prestigious NewFolk songwriting contest. Her latest record "Poet on the Moon" reached the top 10 on the Folk and Roots Music radio charts.
