Marjorie is a singer/songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist from Providence , RI , who plays and sings in the time honored genres of the country blues, rags and roots music characterized by Rev Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, Dave Van Ronk and many other pioneers of this field. She has a body of original work with over 90 songs reflective of this style but with contemporary and personal twists.

Originally from New York City , she took up the guitar in the mid sixties and thus began a lifelong passion for fingerstyle guitar in the time honored traditions of the Country blues, rags and roots music.

A major inflection point occurred in 1999 after she noticed an ad in Acoustic Guitar Magazine for Jorma Kaukonen's FurPeace Ranch Guitar Camp. Jorma and the music of Hot Tuna had been a major interest since their inception in the early 70s, and the opportunity to study with the master seemed nearly too good to be true. The first visit to the camp returned her musical pursuits to the fore. With over 20 return trips to the ranch, and workshops with many notable teachers, she finds herself in the relatively new position of adding 'songwriter' to her list of endeavors. As of August 2004, she is co-teaching fingerstyle guitar alongside Jorma at the camp.
