Mary Black (Dublin, 23 mei 1955) is een Ierse zangeres.


Black begon in de band van haar familie; haar vader Kevin Black was violist, haar moeder Patricia Daly zangeres en haar broers hadden een eigen band.

In 1965 nam zij deel aan de folkgroep Terrace (later General Humbert) uit Dublin; in 1982 deed zij tweemaal mee met De Dannan. Haar zuster Frances Black is eveneens een gevierde zangeres. Mary trad in het huwelijk met Joe O'Reilly, manager bij een platenmaatschappij. In 1983 begon Mary Black een solocarrière. Zij trad ook op met: Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Joan Baez en Van Morrison.

Bij haar platendebuut werd zij ondersteund door Carl Geraghty op saxofoon, Garvin Gallagher op basgitaar, Pat Crowley op piano en accordeon, Dave Early op drums en Frank Gallagher op viool, synthesizer, fluit. Declan Sinnott verlengde zijn langdurige associatie met Mary Black en speelt gitaar.
