Cox, returns to the Monticello Opera House bringing traditional & original mountain music on her banjos and of course a bit of Celtic for this world music evening.

Mary Z. Cox, has recorded 11 CDs, plays concerts & festivals, gives workshops, and authors banjo & mountain dulcimer books. Her music’s been played on National Public Radio, Pandora, iTunes, Spotify, and traditional radio stations across the US & the BBC. Her music is on several movie soundtracks in Canada & the US.

Campbell Folk School, Cal Tech, the Priceless Festival in California, the Monticello Opera House, Uncle Dave Macon Days, and the Florida Folk Festival.
