From the wilds of Maine to NYC

Acadia shot 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!

Summer shows!

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!

Outside the Box Festival!

Marina & Berna are thrilled to join the lineup of Outside the Box, a new, free, 6-day music & performing arts festival occurring in downtown Boston from July 14-19! Outside the Box founder and chief sponsor Ted Cutler says that after seeing so much unsung talent in Boston — from musicians to dancers to theater troupes and beyond — he wanted to build a major festival to celebrate the unsigned and emerging artists of our city and New England.

“We created Outside the Box to bring the community together through a celebration of the performing arts. We want to create a culture change.” -Ted Cutler

Featuring performers from across New England, Outside the Box has generated great press and scored some very well-known headliners, including Guster, The Gin Blossoms, and Kacey Musgraves.

Marina & Berna perform on Thursday, July 16 at 1:30pm on the Tremont Street stage. Click here to visit the Outside the Box website to find a full schedule, directions, and more. Come on out, Boston — it’s going to be a beautiful summer fest!
