For everyone who enjoyed the YouTube video that Other Tink found (see, a very special take on Beethoven's ODE TO JOY, here is a nice song that Mean Mary and her brother wrote together! It was just posted a couple of days ago...

I love a banjo and wish I could play one.

A very nice sound, Virginia.

I love any music from a banjo but that's a very different usage of it. Very nice. I enjoyed that first thing in the morning! Nice post Virginia.

Sounds like a hybrid between bluegrass and flamenco. 

Very nice! :)

I still think their masterpiece was that marvelous arrangement of ODE TO JOY, but yes this is nice also, O'Tink, they are very talented.

Virginia, Mean Mary has a remarkable bio.

And I don't think she's mean, unless the name refers to her playing a mean banjo. :)

O'Tink, I found a YouTube video from Mary six-years-old, with her cowboy hat and a guitar as big as she...singing LONG TALL TEXAN, and they were calling her 'Mean Mary' then...somehow I doubt that she is mean! Her rendition was really good too! I am guessing that 'mean' Mary is an inside joke of a loving family...her brother's name is Frank, surname James? Well Frank James was the brother of Jesse, and it's possible Frank for the brother is not even his given name, rather another inside family joke...

So now I will go to the bio you found...

Here is Mean Mary age six, but my laptop could not open her bio... %$!!#@^&*!!! ...someday soon, I MUST make it more of a priority to update my system!!!

Yes, Virginia, that Mean Mary clip is included in the bio link I posted. :)
