Dubuque’s own Elizabeth Mary wrote her first song, “I Have a Dream,” at age 10 and has been pursuing that dream ever since. She is known best for her hit country singles “Breathe in Girl” and “Sweatpants and Wine.” Elizabeth Mary plays solo acoustic and full band shows anywhere from small venues to large music festivals in the tri-state area. Her highly anticipated 14 track, all original album, Meet Me in Madison, was released in November 2019.

Elizabeth Mary will join Heritage Center’s staff to share her relatable lyrics and story to success including juggling the trials of the pandemic, production of a full-length album, and a newborn. In addition, she will perform hits from her newest album live.
