Mary Cutrufello Band

 
The dreadlocked, Yale-educated, baseball-loving, public-transit- using, mixed-race rocker and country picker, 42, has always been a zealot on stage. She might even be more of one now, after being sidelined by vocal-cord damage in the mid-2000s.

”She doesn’t so much sing songs,” USA Today wrote about her in 1998, “as tear them off, chunk by chunk.”

As she tore her way through a recent gig at the 331 Club in Minneapolis — a town that has yet to grow hip to her unhip appeal — Cutrufello surprised the bar patrons by introducing a song as “one from a record I made for Mercury Records.”
