Joni Mitchell & Bob Dylan. Popular musics' two greatest songwriters.
Their most iconic, revered & brilliant albums performed in their entirety by a dream lineup of the DC areas most talented singers and musicians.

How many tens of thousands of human beings have picked up a guitar or sat down at a piano in the last 50 years, and tried to write a song? It's fair to say there are very few tunesmiths of any age or level of accomplishment who do not directly or slightly less so, bear the influence of Bob Dylan & Joni Mitchell.

Blue and Blood On the Tracks were both made after the artists had already established themselves, yet both seemed to somehow catch their audiences by surprise upon their release.

Their impact was immediate and the spell began on each records opening track All I Want & Tangled Up in Blue and didn’t let up until The Last Time I Saw Richard and Buckets of Tears.

The two albums were startlingly intimate and personal and invited close listening in darkened bedrooms. The records felt like they were made for you but everyone
seemed to feel that way. Blue and Blood On The Tracks struck emotional nerves in millions of listeners that are still reverberating today.

Margot MacDonald
Margot MacDonald
Featured on NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts, Voice of America and TEDx; songwriter, vocalist and live looper, Margot MacDonald embodies a one-woman band. A long time guitarist and pianist, Margot’s instrumentation has expanded to include unconventional vocal accompaniments created live thru the use of a loop pedal. Haunting, powerful and indie-pop driven, Margot’s performances make you forget the technology she hones, as you lose yourself in layers of lush vocals and striking melodies.

Margot is Washington City Paper's "Best Singer" of 2014, a three-time winner of the Washington Area Music Association 'Artist of the Year' award, a recipient of DC’s Power 30 Under 30 award, and an Artist-in-Residence alumna at the Music Center at Strathmore. Now 23, her latest album, Canvas, is quickly gaining critical acclaim.

Margot began her music career with the Washington National Opera at age 10, and by 12 was releasing her first album of original material. Since then, she has put out a second, third and fourth album (funded through the gracious support of her fans, raising $15,000 via IndieGogo), opened for national acts, and played both the SXSW and CMJ Music Festivals, and such venues as the Kennedy Center, 9:30 Club, Lincoln Theatre, Wolf Trap, The Birchmere, Strathmore, Rams Head Live, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall 2 and the United Palace Theatre in NYC. She hosted the official BMI showcase series in DC, served on the board of directors for the Songwriters’ Association of Washington, and has led GRAMMY U and other songwriting workshops.

In her spare time, Margot supports nonprofits such as Musicians on Call and More Than Me, regularly performs at charity events, and advocates for the arts in DC. She has also been known to roast individual marshmallows, anytime, anywhere.
