"Marianne's audience rapport was engaging. She sang with wonderful pitch, and controlled abandon. Flemming's guitar playing was inventive and smooth, and her compositions were clever and interesting -musically and lyrically."

“The combination of her great lyrics and stellar musicianship makes this woman a cult legend.”

I was blown away by Marianne's talent.  I can't remember the last time I was so impressed with a performer - not only do I love her guitar playing, but she has an amazing singing style, and as if that isn't enough, she writes great songs too!
