Exciting news! Marina is honored to be supporting none other than Dar Williams at the beautiful Cabot Theater in Beverly, MA on March 17!

One of the most lauded singer-songwriters of her generation, Dar Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the early ’90s. Williams’ growth as an individual over her almost three-decade-long career has gone hand-in-hand with her evolution as an artist. She has toured with such distinguished artists as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, and Shawn Colvin, and is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post‘s Green Blog. A dedicated environmentalist, Williams toured throughout the northeast visiting children’s camps and planting bee gardens in summer 2011.

Marina has long been a fan of Dar’s, first having seen her 15+ years ago (!) at a solo acoustic show. Dar’s exuberant stage presence and insightful, funny, and honest songwriting have continued to inspire Marina as her own performance and writing career has developed.

This promises to be a memorable night of original music performed by one of the biggest names in American folk, supported by a local rising star. Don’t miss it! Click here for tickets and event details.

On Saturday, 12/12, I’m hitting a brand new venue (for me!), the Cat in the Cradle Coffeehouse in Byfield, MA! I will be splitting the bill with Boston folkie Lenny Solomon, who over a 50+ year career has recorded several albums and has supported such legends as Bonnie Raitt, Chris Smither, and Spider John. Drawing on similar influences & traditions, Lenny’s and my songwriting and performance styles are distinctly different from one another, yet complementary. This promises to be a great, dynamic show of original music — don’t miss it!

September 11 and 12, 2015: Marina is honored to be supporting legendary songwriter, author, painter, and activist Judy Collins for two sold-out concerts at the stunning Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport, MA!

With an incredible catalog of 50+ albums, Collins has been a leader and inspiration for songwriters and activists the world over since the 1960s. She has earned several Grammy Awards, and has released multiple gold- and platinum-selling albums. Known for her mellifluous voice, unparalleled artistry and musicianship, and her creative interpretations of traditional and well-known songs, Collins is an icon who has long been an important influence on Marina’s music and career.

In fact, the best way to explain her feelings on supporting such a folk legend, Marina feels, is to quote one of Collins’ own lyrics (!):

“Pinch me darlin’ I think I’m dreamin’
This is too good to be true
…”
