In Spring of 2021, Marion with Sister Jane and guitar master Chris Fargen began forming a new Louisville-based band called The Weeping Pints that will feature pub-inspired music of the British Isles - more information coming soon on this venture here.
Marion is joined in Trickster Sister by Sister Jane Halliday on violin, banjo uke and backing vocals, and by Donna Bostock on bass, percussion, and backing vocals. More information about Jane and Donna is below (and for more information on Marion - her bio and EPK- see elsewhere on this website).

She studied violin with Paul Kling, Philipp Naegele, Peter McHugh, and Timothy Baker, and has performed with orchestras and ensembles throughout Kentucky.

Besides her work as a classical musician, Jane is a superb jazz violinist specializing in “gypsy jazz”which honors the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli. She is an original member of Swing ‘39, an ensemble devoted to this unique genre of swing jazz.
