Singer-songwriter Mary Lou Minor fuses a love of country music, folk sensibilities & classical piano training into an eclectic style of country-roots, garnished with southern rock for good measure. Her award-winning songwriting is imbued with lyrical integrity that draws the listener into each story. “I started my musical career with a country-rock band, Fargo, and began writing a few years later. After moving north of Toronto, I co-founded an acoustic country-roots band, Three Penny Opus, that won ‘Gold’ in Havelock’s ‘Ontario Country Music Showdown’ and ‘Best Country’ at the Barrie New Musicfest in 2009.” Songwriters Association of Canada
