Americana, bluegrass and folk artist Mean Mary of Nashville will perform at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Flat Iron Crossroads in Gloucester.
Originally from Alabama, Mary James lived in a variety of places and conditions with her nomadic parents throughout her childhood. She and her brother Frank were child prodigies, playing music and acting in Hollywood.
Later in life, James was in an automobile accident that almost took her life and paralyzed her right vocal cord. She struggled to regain use of her vocal cord and went on to record 16 albums, the newest of which is “Cold.”
James plays 11 instruments, tours both nationally and internationally, and is the Goodtime Ambassador for Deering Banjos. She is also an author.
Doors open at 5 p.m. with AR Smokehouse food truck and beverages available for purchase.
Tickets are $20 and are available at flatironcrossroads.com.
