Mean Mary at Edale on May 6

Nashville-based artist Mean Mary plays in Edale as part of her tour of the United Kingdom.

Mixing the power of rock with the raw innocence of folk and bluegrass, she promises a fun night for all ages.

Mean Mary plays 11 instruments and is renowned for her incredibly fast banjo, guitar and fiddle renditions.

She could read music before she could read words and wrote original songs at age five.

By age seven she was proficient on vocals, guitar, banjo, and violin, and her life became one long road show of events, venues, TV, radio and film.

Now an international touring artist, she has recorded 14 albums to date.

She is also an award winning song writer and book author.

Her original banjo song, Iron Horse (the story of Native American maiden and her horse racing against a train) received the IMA’s Vox Populi award for best Americana song.

Mean Mary will be performing in Edale Village Hall on Friday, May 6, at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £8 (adult) and £4 (child). Book online: www.ticketsource.co.uk/search/searchVenue.asp?venue_id=53217
