Marilyn Miller

Marilyn Miller is a singer/songwriter from Hudson, NY who most often makes music as half the duo, ‘Rick and Marilyn’. She is known for busking on the Hudson Streets, leading song circles at local venues, and playing Farmers Markets, festivals, restaurants, and bars. Her high energy presentation, choice of material and strong voice make her a favorite at those venues!! Compared to both Neil Young for her writing style and Patti Smith for her delivery, this is a woman you should hear.








(long bio)

A fixture on the local music scene, Marilyn Miller was born in Hudson, NY and grew up in nearby Germantown. She is the granddaughter of Harrison Miller, a popular local fiddler, and entertainer. She played clarinet in the school band and in the Columbia County musical institution, The Ghent Band. When the Woodstock wave hit the Hudson Valley, Marilyn was ready and her musical life blossomed.

Neil Young, Pete Seeger, Patti Smith, and Joni Mitchell, among others, influenced her worldview and her interest in music and the guitar. Though marriage and motherhood intervened, her desire to keep learning and performing led her to guitar teacher David Hodge in the Berkshire Mountains. Step by step, Marilyn continued to grow into songwriting, performing and recording her own songs.

Marilyn is a big believer in continuing to learn and grow by attending workshops and seminars by notable songwriters and performers such as Steve Earle, Richard Thompson, and Sloan Wainwright. An enthusiastic 'Rustie', she has traveled the world with this group of Neil Young fans, singing and playing in dozens of international cities (while attending over 100 of Neil's shows!)

These days, her influences tend towards James McMurtry, Todd Snider, Lukas Nelson, John Prine, and her friend and fellow musician Betsi Krisniski, who is her sometime partner and 'busking sister' in the loosely organized group of street players known as 'HUDSON BUSK".

Her current project is 'Rick and Marilyn', an electro-acoustic duo with guitar slinger Rick Warren. They appear at many events such as the Blueberry Festival, Rhinebeck PorchFest, Hudson Music Fest, Lighthouse Fundraiser, Greene County Arts Picnic and numerous farmers markets, open mics and other venues.  She is known among other musicians for hosting jams and song circles and is always on the scene for social justice and progressive political events with her guitar.

Marilyn Miller truly embodies the spirit of bringing 'Music to the People' in a grassroots way, and by doing so brings the 'People to the Music'.
