Calhoun has performed at New YorkÆs Bottom Line, NashvilleÆs Bluebird Cafe, and the Barns of Wolf Trap.Marge Calhoun’s unique artistic vision and commitment to songwriting allow her to seemlessly graft a succession of musical styles onto her country roots. It is such versatility that makes her highly personalized songs ring with both honesty and emotion.
