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....

My blogging status.....

Not good....I have been neglectful still.

So I decided to list various times this summer I got to play with and for other people. I hope to come back to this list and write more....

In June, I was invited to play the Weekend at David's birthday party. I think I wrote about that....Then in July I went to Bugs' house to rehearse for ARF, played the folk jam in spencertown and had a GREAT weekend learning that I CAN create music at Willie Mae Rock Camp....I know I wrote about that. The last weekend of the month I went to Nan's for an ARF rehearsal and spent a lot of time playing with Nan and Robin...that was fun, sitting on Nan's porch, playing guitar with two women!!

August brought me ARF and the Ohio Rust Fest. I wrote about both and feel very fortunate to have those experiences....

In September I brought my guitar to my nephew's birthday party. That was cool because I was asked to play by attendees and encouraged to continue to play!!! I think I was a little distracting to the band in the house, as the night was a fine one and most folks would rather be outside than in the basement, even if there were a really fine band down there playing.....

In September I also had one of my favorites ...I provided the music (which included making sure others came up to the mic and played/sang!!) for Kathy B's pre-Farm Aid party. It was SO MUCH FUN to play music for those very appreciative rusties and family and friends of Kathy. I think it is right at the top of the most fun I have had playing....

Then I had rehearsal for OPL with Nan.

I didn't play with or for others again except for OPL/IRF/endless firecircle jams....i WILL write about that. I don't think I have fully recovered.

And then last week I played at David's house with him and Shaun and this past week I played Robin.

I am not SURE but I think that does it for my musical exploits.

Now, back to trying to sell some guitars (anyone interested in a ventura??) LOL....
