Mary P & the Friendly Friends

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Folk, guitar, voice. Succulent, sweet, surprises. Bubbles, hula hoops, chalk.
Petite person, booming vocals that can stop fixies in their tracks.
Also, sometimes an 80's sing-a-long song on ukulele thrown in, because we're grown ups and we can do what we want.

Want to hear something? If you request it and I know it? I'll play it.
*Also, though not specifically geared towards kids, people of all ages tend to listen joyfully. I think you'll like it.

Harvard Square Roots

Music Genre: 
Band Description: 

‘60s folk music by Dan Hogan and Jane Lawson.

Dan & Jane’s haphazard career as folksingers has included occasional house concerts and busking in Harvard Square and Martha’s Vineyard. Dan’s been singing and playing guitar since 14. Despite several superb instructors, he’s kept his proficiency at a pretty low level. But his enthusiasm for ‘60s folk music, especially Leonard Cohen, has somewhat made up for lack of talent. With stardom beyond reach, he found his niche as the now retired Executive Director of Club Passim. Jane is a retired teacher, painter, and rank amateur singer. She’s been wailing away in church choirs and community theater and choruses for a very long time.
