ACTU presents Mary Z. Cox


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

This year and last have been fine picking years for two time Florida & North Carolina Banjo champion Mary Z Cox--getting a chance to meet and play with so many talented banjoists and fiddlers and having a chance to record with many of them in recordings or videos.

Good Morning Banjo is what happened when Mary Z Cox & Champion North Carolina fiddler ,Tim Gardner, got together in October in the Carolina mountains and recorded Mary Z's 10th recording, "Good Morning Banjo" ! And there's a new "Good Morning Banjo Tab" for 2017 too. And there’s the extra tasty treat of mountain dulcimer, cello banjo & Mary Z even belts out three of her favorite traditional songs.

Mary Z is also a Florida mountain dulcimer champion, as well as a four-time champion at the Transylvania (NC) Old Time Music Competition, and first place winner at the Uncle Dave Macon Days in Tennessee.

She has taught mountain dulcimer workshops at the Lagniappe dulcimer Fete, Suwannee Dulcimer Retreat, Fall NGFDA Festival at Unicoi, Florida Folk Festival, the Will McLean Festival and in Charlotte, NC, Denver, NC & Charleston SC. Her dulcimer articles, tabs, & mp3s have been published in the Dulcimer Player News.

Join us for lunch on The Rumble Terrace outside Balfour Chapel after the concert!
