Today Mean Mary plays 11 instruments and tours internationally. She is also an award-winning songwriter and book author. Recently, her original banjo song “Iron Horse,” the story of a Native American maiden and her horse racing against a train, received the IMA’s Vox Populi Award for best Americana song.
