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....

Labor Day Weekend

I haven't had such a lazy weekend in a long time...feels pretty good.

I started the weekend by walking down Warren Street in Hudson....
Todd and I....saw the sunset over the river, enjoyed peeking in the 'Secret Gardener', marveled at the restore job done on many of the buildings, and avoided that great ice cream at 'Licks'....

we ended at the Spotty Dog where we had some wonderful brews and settled in to hear some local guys play some good music....first up, David Ree (pronounced RAY, according to his myspace). We enjoyed his set very much!! (and you can check him out by clicking his name).

Next up was Shane Murphy but by then I needed to walk again (sitting still is not my best quality!), so we left and came to my house where we watched the full moon from my screen house...thank god for the protection from the mosquitoes!!! You'd think they would be starving by now, there are just so very many of them out there this year!!!

Saturday I spend the entire day...yes, the ENTIRE DAY...playing guitar. Heaven. No guilt....no nagging sense of all the other things I should be doing.....just playing guitar. And singing. Spent some time with Brooks Williams DVD on 'Groove', 'Fretboard Roadmaps', handouts from camp, wrote a song about a conversation I had with someone about someone else (hehe...watch out! you never know what will end up in a tune here....) and played many many songs just because I wanted to.

Again, heaven....

I REALLY wanted to take off for Robins Sprague Street Jam, but I did not. I had another party to go to, Nathan's graduation/birthday party. I did bring my guitar, and I did get a request (well, several) for playing that guitar, but Mike was not aware of it (I don't think) and no one asked him (I certainly was not!) to shut the recorded music down. It was nice to be asked to play, though....maybe next time!!

Anyway, I did have a great time chatting with Mike and friends, drinking some nice brew (Sierra Nevada Anniversary India Pale Ale....nice) and sharing some tequila with Mike (the Three Gentleman...REAL nice) and making and watching the fire....good times with good friends....

Now it is Monday. My day off. I do have a few hours of yard work calling me....pruning my overgrown lilacs (i work each season on them, hoping the young will grow up to replace the older and give flowers and make a nice fence between me and the next house....), digging ditches for rain to run OFF the driveway instead of into my garage, stuff like that....LOL.

And play guitar. I am learning the neck. Yep, playing for years in first position gets a little boring...time to take my fingers to new places and sounds and see what happens....

Hope all of you who read this are/did have a great Labor Day Weekend too....

SUPPORT INDIE ARTISTS...they are the real thing....
