Thanks for stopping by!

Hi! I am Marilyn, a singer/songwriter in Hudson, NY. You have landed on my personal website/ blog/ calendar, and you will find here all kinds of things about my musical life. Look around! My blog is below, but over in the right column under 'Pages', you can see links to videos, show schedules, song lists and the other musical projects I am working on. I really hope you will consider getting to a show or even have me (and my friends) come and entertain you at your party or event. People enjoy having us play for them!

When the music calls, I *will* be there....

Birthdays and Walks

I had a birthday last Wednesday (May 14), so I considered this entire week my birthday week....lol. Last weekend, I spend with B-I-L Mike....we took a long walk, we had lots of good conversation, we visited my mother for mothers day and brought her dinner.....we had another meal out....thanks for starting off my birthday!!!!

During the week, I did my usual.....guitar lesson on the day itself, open mic on thursday (some great music by sammy this week....he is really rippin' on that piano these days!!!!)...

Friday, I had dinner and conversation with Todd and Michelle....great meal, wonderful visit!!!....sorry Todd, for tiring you out so soon!!!....and you are younger than ME!!!!

Saturday, I did nothing.....played some guitar, caught up on email, moved a pile of branches out of the yard....and then a campfire with Paul and MaryAnne....another relaxing, good time....

Sunday was the Garbage Trail Walk.....Every year, Paul and I walk in honor of our friends Karen, Paul, Carolyn and John....who suffer with Huntingtons Disease....a progressive neurological disorder that runs in families. The day was cool, but most everyone completed the 6.6 miles before the showers started.....good to see everyone again!!!!! I will post some pictures when i get home tonight....

The Garbage Trail Walk is named such because we start the walk at the famed Guthrie Center...the church that was pivotal in Arlo Guthries story 'Alice's Restaurant'. We actually walk from the church to the dump (which was closed that fateful thanksgiving day) to the po-lice station where Arlo spent some quality time, to the former Alice's Restaurant in Stockbridge MA....(we leave out the actual scene of the crime....makes the walk too long...lol).

After that, I got to go out and eat a divine Italian meal with my other B-I-L Kenny.....we had a lot of good laughs and talks.....Kenny's house is coming along.....and that meal was FAN-Fing-TASTIC.......
