Bar band in Breckenridge is like Billie Holiday in bell-bottoms

Who: Mary Fagan with Moose Bednarski

When: Today and Saturday

Where: The Briar Rose Chophouse and Saloon, Breckenridge

Where’d the name come from? My mama’s dear Aunt Mary. And Moose, well, he’s big!

Home base: Austin, Texas

Who are you? Billie Holiday in bell-bottoms.

If your music were a tangible item, what would it be, and why? A convertible MG because it’s both classy and flower-power inspired.

Why do people love ya? When I get up off their couch in the morning, I put all the cushions back in the right place.

How do you keep it fresh? I’m always writing new songs and learning more old ones.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve done/weirdest experience? Last winter I toured Central New York in a blizzard. Gig to gig, it never stopped snowing, and I felt like I never stopped driving.
