Ah, the beauty of New England in the summertime: my two next shows couldn’t be more different from each other! First, Bernardo and I head north to the wilds of Maine to play an intimate concert at the beautiful Somerset Abbey up in Madison, ME on September 9. We will camp in stunning Acadia before heading over to Madison for dinner & a show — let us serenade you as you dine! Tickets and more info available here.
Next up, we’re southbound for New York City! We’ll be playing an acoustic set at the Rockwood Music Hall on the lower East Side, down on Allen Street, on September 16 at 4pm. A cozy venue with great original music from local and touring acts, Rockwood features some of the best undiscovered, up and coming music around. Visit their website to see the full lineup… hope to see you, New Yorkers!
Hello, hello! I write from a glowing screen in an old stone house in the hills of Chianti, the dark green Persian blinds drawn tight against the summer swelter outside. The wheat sways and glows gold, spilling down the hillside to the well in the valley below. Summer is here, the cicadas are singing, the jasmine is blooming… and I am booking, booking, booking!
After another few weeks in this blissful place, Berna and I will hop a plane and head back to salty New England, guitars in hand, where my trusty steed (… Honda) awaits. The trunk is already packed: tent, fishing pole, amps, CDs. We’ll hit the ground running — as usual — with shows booked in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and New York City (and more on the way). We’ll be stretching out some new tunes — including one in Italian (!) — off my forthcoming album Tide & Stars. And we would LOVE to see & sing to you. It’s been too long!
Click here to view upcoming gigs on the books. I’m adding more shows all the time, though, so check back often if you don’t find one in your area — or follow me (Facebook) (Instagram) to stay up to date! Thanks team… and see you SOON!

This weekend, Marina & Berna hit the road for two intimate acoustic (and FREE!) shows. The first is on Friday, 3/10 up in the salty city of Portland, ME: we will play two original sets on the newly-renovated stage at Port City Blue, one of Portland’s coziest venues for original folk, bluegrass, jazz, and more. Our set starts at 8pm. Join us for tunes & brews (and maybe some snow)!
Next up, on Sunday, March 12, we head down to New York City to play a set at the Rockwood Music Hall, down on Manhattan’s lower east side. Rockwood has three separate stages, each in its own space with its own bar and staff — so they up hosting dozens of independent musicians each day! It’s a great place to come to discover new music. We hit at 5pm on Stage 1 – hope to see you, New York friends & fans!
This week, I’m so excited to be hitting the road again in acoustic duo with Bernardo. In the coming days we’ll hit Maine, Connecticut, and New York City – and on Saturday, we’ll be opening for none other than incredible troubadour, artist, and author Ellis Paul! Check the list below for dates & details. Hope to see some old & new faces along the way!
- January 14: Port City Blue, Portland ME, 6pm
- January 16: opening for Ellis Paul, The Vanilla Bean Cafe, Pomfret CT,7:30pm
- January 17: Rockwood Music Hall, New York, NY, 4pm on Stage 1
I am so excited to be heading down to New York this weekend to play a few acoustic shows! I’ll be hitting my favorite spot to play in New York, the world-famous Bitter End on Thursday, 3/13 at 8pm ($5); then on Friday, 3/14 I play a private house concert in NJ (email me for details!); and everything wraps up on Saturday, 3/15 with a 3pm set on Stage 1 at the Rockwood Music Hall. This is a new venue for me, and I am psyched to check out this renowned listening space. Hope to see many old and new faces!
After an amazing CD release party this weekend for my new album Unbound, I am on the road again! Bernardo and I head outta town tomorrow to hit New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington DC as an acoustic duo. So, all you city folk: come on out and support us! We’d love to see you!
We are SO excited to return to The Bitter End, New York’s oldest rock club, as well as Melodies Cafe – formerly Milkboy Coffee – in Philly. Last year’s cross country tour brought us to these two clubs, and we are looking forward to gracing their stages again! We’ll be sharing the bill in both places with some fantastic musicians, so don’t miss us!
We will also be hitting two NEW venues on this tour: Columbia University’s Postcrypt Coffeehouse, and Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse in DC. As a Columbia alum, I am quite familiar with Postcrypt: tucked in the basement of the gorgeous St. Paul’s Church, this stone cavern makes for a spooky – but sonically magical! – venue for acoustic music. As for Ebenezer’s – I have never been, but I have heard along the folk circuit that it is one of DC’s top venues for original music. The capital may be shut down, but we will rock on – so come join us!
