Marigolds at MERA

by Linda Rush


Friday, Sept. 29th, was one of the coldest evenings we’ve had so far, and the furnace was not working at the MERA Schoolhouse in McDonalds Corners, but this did not deter an audience of about 60 people from enjoying a terrific concert put on there by “The Marigolds”. This group is composed of Suzie Vinnick, Caitlin Hanford and Gwen Swick, each of whom is an outstanding singer songwriter in her own right. Singing a mixture of blues, folk, country and jazz tunes, they captivated the audience with their wonderful voices and beautiful harmonies. The MERA Schoolhouse is a wonderful setting for an intimate concert, with its good acoustics and comfortable ambiance. This concert was one of a series organized by Jenny Whiteley of Elphin. Several of these excellent events have been offered in the Maberly Hall in the past year or two. Our community is indeed fortunate to have a musician of the caliber of Jenny who is willing to bring quality musical events to local audiences. Jenny does not have another such concert finalized at the moment, but if you want to keep up to date on her activities you can visit her website at jennywhiteley.com
