Please note that this is a change to the original programme. Audrey Auld, who was to accompany Mean Mary, has had to cancel her plans to tour this year, owing to a medical issue. We wish her well in her recovery and hope to see her in the UK before too long.
Mean Mary, international touring singer, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist, is not really so mean—even Hank Williams Jr called her a "sweetheart." But she IS infamous for her alluring story songs, incredible instrumental speed, & rich voice that can travel from deep emotion to sparkling trills. She is also the award-winning author of three novels and a banjo music book.
Mean Mary started out life as a musical prodigy, could read music before she could read words, and co-wrote original songs at age five. By age seven she was proficient on the guitar, banjo, and violin, and entertained audiences across the US with her vocal and instrumental skills. Her life has been one long road show interspersed with TV, radio, and film work. She is also a prolific songwriter, book author, and the fun loving star of Nashville TV show, Never-Ending Street.
