Huntington’s Own – Three Generations: Lois Morton, Annie Mark, Kirsten Maxwell
October 7, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Lois Morton has been delighting audiences in the New York metropolitan area with her abundant charm and humorous songs of social commentary. Reinventing herself in retirement, Lois has gone from being an educator and therapist to a singer-songwriter with a rapier wit and surprisingly contemporary approach. Her show “As I See It” highlights Lois’ original, often hilarious songs that encourage us to laugh at ourselves, while she also brings to life the legendary Edith Piaf in a lecture-cabaret program featuring songs and stories.

Annie Mark has shared her country-tinged Americana-roots music with audiences from Nashville to Ireland. A New York native, she moved to the South at age 10, where she nurtured a life-long love of old-style country music and of songs that convey slice-of-life stories about people’s lives. Sung in her richly textured voice, her songs explore life’s journey and universal themes of love and loss, struggles and triumphs, shadows and light. Annie plays a mix of folk and country, with a little bit of blues-rock, accompanying herself on a strong, steady rhythm guitar.
Kirsten Maxwell has been earning accolades and winning over audiences across the country. She was a finalist in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Competition (2016) and an audience-voted “Most Wanted” artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. She took first place in a contest sponsored by the Rhode Island Songwriters Association (RISA) in 2015 and was a winner in the 2016 South Florida Folk Festival Singer-Songwriter Competition. She has had official juried showcases at several conferences hosted by regional affiliates of Folk Alliance International, has a coveted Formal Showcase at this fall’s Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference, and was part of NERFA Presents Young Folk showcases at the Mariposa and Philadelphia Folk Festivals.
