MARGIE’S A HIT AT THE 27TH ANNUAL STORYTELLING
FESTIVAL ON April 25, 2008!
Margie brought the house of approximately 350 attendees down that Friday night.
She opened the annual festivities as a featured artist for Family Night, hosted
by Connecticut College for the Connecticut Storytelling Center www.connstorycenter.org
The audience got to hear the back-stories to 2 songs, (including the songs
themselves): “Sock Monsters”, from Singin’ Round the
Campfire with Margie” 2005, and “Turn Out the Lights and Go to
Bed!” from the 2007 “On the Road with the Fun Family” album.
Margie is currently working on turning “Sock Monsters” into a children’s
Margie’s “Singin’ Round
the Campfire” and “Sock Monsters”:
both quarter-finalists in the 2006
International Songwriting Competition!
What wonderful company to be in…After all was said and done, the ISC
received over 15,000 entries from over 88 countries, and Margie made it into
the quarter-finals (approx. 50 other songs in the Children’s category).
Though not chosen as one of the final 14, it was quite an honor, especially
to be in the same category as Bill Harley, whose work Margie has admired for
over 15 years. The panel of judges was important; CEO’s ranging from
record companies, Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, and Music for Little People.
Let me know what song YOU think I should enter next year, and for more information
on the ISC, log on to: http://www.songwritingcompetition.com
From Friday, February
3, 2006 – 4:00-5:00pm
Margie was featured on "Songwriter" with Dale Cramer-Burr on Wesleyan
University's Public Radio station WESU 88.1 FM. We are currently working on
making that interview available on our pressroom page. Please be patient! Thanks!
