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....

The Music is Moving Along

What a long time since I sat down to write a real post here...and this will be short, as I am, as always, short on time.

About a month ago, I made contact with an old friend of mine, Ben, who is a first class musician. He is excited about my originals and we are working on some arrangements for the songs that are already up on my blog/reverbnation sites as well as recording some of my more recent materials.

We have also been playing together....last friday i had a cookout/party here and ben and robin were a part of it, along with a group of friends who supported the music by their wonderful enthusiasm and/or vocals. Ken brought his guitar and played along a couple of songs, too... It was a great time and laid the foundation for yesterdays 'Open Mic' which turned into mostly a 'Marilyn and Ben' performance due to the lack of other players.... We did have a couple folks contribute such as Rob G, who i have finally met!!...and they added a lot to the good times....AND the rain held off...

It seems to be the time of 'no players' for other open mics around here too...a couple weeks ago, I stopped by the Mt Washington House in Hillsdale, NY and was the only player there too....so I played and sang and again had a few people sit in, but no one who wanted to take the lead....that was a good time too....

I am currently working out a gig in Hudson, my home town...to be announced. If you are local (or not!!!) and want to be sure not to miss a gig, please sign up on my reverbnation site.....you will only get a mailing when i am announcing a gig...

Now, out to my yard to mow the lawn....then to practice for the Neil Young Tribute in Jay NY, along with many fine rusted musicians....
