"I remember doing the exact same thing. I would make rooms inside using towels and clothes pegs. I was always building forts down at the river in summer and snow forts in the winter with cubby holes dug in for a kitchen area."

Hi, I'm Martha Maria. I record as MarMelodian. I'm a singer/songwriter and composer. My style is electric, progressive folk, with a dash of Celtic and Appalachian Mountain influences. I write and record songs, carols, hymns and instrumental music. My voice is a cross between Loreena McKennett, Kate Bush and Stevie Nicks. My high notes have been described as bell like and ethereal but my low notes are earthy and soulful. My lyrics are poetic and my melodies are hauntingly beautiful and memorable. You can find MarMelodian on iTunes, Reverbnation and other internet outlets or at www.marmelodian.com for music, podcasts and my blog.
What Irish things do I play, dance, say, sing or other:
I'm a mountain girl, from the Appalachian Mountains in East Tennessee, USA. The Appalachians were settled by Scottish, Irish and English pioneers. The people of the Appalachians were isolated by rugged terrain for and kept the old ways, the old music and stories. So my style is, which is progressive, electric folk has a distinctly Celtic sound, even though I am from the states.
How many years have you been playing/singing?
A lot. I started playing the piano by ear when I was four.
I love it all. I've always had an awareness of being a musical spirit, even when I was tiny. I especially love all kinds of folk music, classical, overtone, old jazz, chant, hymns, Sacred Harp singing, you name it, if it's musical, I like it!....

I love this about Irish Dancing:
Well, as a non dancer, I love the spirit and percussive elements of Irish dance.
