Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I learned of Flatpicking through Brad Davis, a rather new Guitar and Vocals HERO of mine. My name is Marguerite~ turned 50 years old in April of this year and still live and breathe for MUSIC, SWEET MUSIC! Was reared by the founder of the Music Dept. at Davis (U.C.D); a composer, musician in his own MAGICAL RIGHT (Jerome W. Rosen- my father :-) He drug me to his concerts (I "hated" that "Modern Contemporary" junk as he simply could not tolerate what my sibblings and I listened to- He'd scream and holler about it all having only "TWO CHORDS!.). We all grew past that, and WE, ALL OF US, still THRIVE!
Spent most of my life (so far :-) following many, MANY genres of music and love them all, (Actually, there are a FEW execptions- but I TRY!) Have had the GREAT virtue of being EXPOSED to LOTS of Music and lived in, likewise, lots of places~ including Rome/Florence, Italy, where I truly learned to love opera, BUT (!) also high-tailed it to see Elton John at age 14 when he appeared in Roma! Bluegrass was "our only music" throughout my marriage, and I learned to LOVE the "festival" focus we lived chasing around all those we could. Sadly, when the marriage died, so did my Bluegrass, so when I found MySpace- one day out of the blue came a request from Brad Davis, I went to his site, and saw "New Grass Revival" on top of his "influences". Brad kind of brought me back to my dormant PASSIONS for pickers and winners - I got so giddy about Brad's own music as well as his kick-ass tolerance to my explosive (that is for You, my nameless other friend :-) ENTHUSIASM & eagerness to find all my old Bluegrass Hero's again....OH MY,I think I seem a stalker now- something like that.

But that is just for fun, and I'm very glad to be here! Marguerite Rosen Burnett

Hi Marguerite,

Good to be in your list of friends. I am also a fan of many styles of music, but play bluegrass for a living.

Feel free to share them. I've got a few more, but these were the really good ones, at least in my opinion. Only thing better would have been if Peter had his quartet with Tony and Brin. That would have been fabulous!
