'Mean Mary' tours Ulster, 15-26 Apr. 2016

Thanks to Richard Leeman of the Down and Out Bluegrass Band, who has just posted this news on the Belfast Bluegrass Facebook:

... today we welcomed another follower to the Facebook page by the name of Mary James [above]. Mary is probably more familiar to some of you by the name 'Mean Mary', and is someone who I have watched many, many times on YouTube. Mary is a fantastic banjo, fiddle and guitar player from Alabama and, as luck would have it, will soon be coming to Northern Ireland touring her new album Sweet.

Richard's post includes a link to a YouTube sample of Mary's banjo-picking AND the full list of her dates in the North, which begin a series of shows in these islands that continues up to 25 May. Full details, with links to venue websites, location maps, and online ticket booking facilities, are on Mary's online tour schedule and also on her Facebook. The Ulster dates shown there are:
