That one didn't work for me, Bruce. I found it through Google, so I'll give it a try. CLICK HERE, but then, JoeClones usually have to rescue me from my goofs.

Thanks, Bruce. Margaret once spent the night on a pallet on my floor after a performance at the Ark about 1976-77. She is just as beautiful as she was then! I love her music! Abby

For you DC-area 'Catters, Margaret is our featured FSGW performer on Saturday, May 19, at the Washington Ethical Society auditorium. This is going to be a terrific program, and if you're an FSGW member, it's FREE. (The 9 free monthly programs included with your membership are just one of the reasons the Folklore Society is one of the best folk entertainment bargains around! If you're not a member, you should consider joining at Margaret's concert.)

Margaret's repertoire is a real treasure -- mostly traditional tunes and songs from Vermont, her home state, and the rest of New England. She performs lots of songs from the Helen Hartness Flanders collection, which has been discussed here on the Mudcat. She plays an unusual harp-zither, a reproduction of a century-old instrument that she discovered in an old barn and which has become known as the "MacArthur Harp." She also plays guitar and mountain dulcimer. Her newest recording, "Them Stars," takes its title from a wonderful cowboy poem that Margaret discovered gathering dust in a Colorado archive and which she set to music. It's a gem!

Thanks, Bruce, for giving us an opportunity to discuss a performer who's right up there on my list of favorites. See you on the 19th? Kathy

Kathy, Margaret told told me that date

May 19 at WES

in an email many months ago, and I'm hoping to finally get to meet her there. I first heard her at the old Red Fox Inn in Bethesda, somewhere around 1978.

Margaret also pays close attention to the history of Vermont, and finds old songs relative to the state's history from lots of places besides folk song collections.

BTW, there was a nice feature on Margaret in the Dulcimer Players News last year, the on-line condensed (very) section is HERE under the "Articles" section. (Sorry, no direct link)
