Mean Mary's previous appearances at White Horse have made her a favorite of both audiences and our staff. Charming, Talented, Funny... and Immensely Entertaining.
This time around she's bringing her band along with her... The Contrary's.
Known internationally for her lightning-fast fingers and raw, unmistakable vocal sound (The Amplifier calls it “sexy, vulnerable and yet as powerful as any man’s.”), Mean Mary will perform songs that travel the genres of roots, bluegrass, blues, and folk rock—story songs, fast songs, sad songs, songs to make your feet tap.
Her life has been one long road show interspersed with TV, radio, and film. She has performed more than 500 live TV shows and over 4,000 road shows—including national festivals, fairs, cruises, colleges, theatres, clubs and house concerts. To date she plays eleven instruments, is a prolific songwriter, playwright, novelist, producer, and the spirited star of Nashville TV show, “Never-Ending Street.”
A note about her most recent novel, Hell Is Naked:
Hell Is Naked recently took finalist honors in the Readers Favorite International Awards. Full of suspense and mystery, it is as fast paced as Mean Mary’s new Blazing Tour. When former SWAT and police officer, Warren Roberts, romps through the Hollywood movie scene, he proves that off-beat investigative styles can achieve results and that action, adventure, humor, and romance can credibly inhabit the same storyMean Mary, international singer/writer & master of 11 instruments, 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, & a rich voice that can travel from deep emotion to sparkling trills.
