Mary Guthrie plays acoustic and electric rhythm guitar and bass, and writes and sings rock, Americana, country and blues songs. She is a founding member of the band Merry and the Mood Swings ("Is it the caffeine, or the Mood Swings?"), which enjoyed a brief ride as Grammy contenders in 2010 (Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" won instead, go figure!). Mary also played in a cover band, Replay, for a year ("All Hits, No Misses") and is currently one of the "M's" in the jazz-blues-Americana trio Sugar Daddy and the M&Ms, with DSA member Dickey Johnson and longtime music partner, vocalist Mary Hestand. Mary has enjoyed performing live with the various music groups mentioned above at festivals, private events, bars and coffee houses; on occasion she and her music friends will donate their performances for charities or will perform bedside for those needing comfort. Mary served on the DSA Board in 2008 and again in 2011; during her service she helped promote the annual national DSA Song Contest, created a marketing membership brochure and shepherded the membership renewals.
