Mean Mary Video

The Mean Mary video of her rather rapid rendition of 'Cripple Creek' that I mentioned here has just gone over the one million viewers mark. That's a pretty fair amount, even if it was spread over nearly four years. Mary is an excellent example of someone who has used YouTube to build a following -- having those sort of playing skills translates well to promotion via video.

She and brother Frank will be in their old stomping grounds (well, Frank stomps some anyway) of Long Beach California this week, before heading north to the wine country (now there's a tour I wouldn't mind being on) and San Francisco before returning to Nashville.

Hmm...when she plays in Long Beach, will it be Mean Mary by the Queen Mary?
