“Maggie is a a Louisiana grown soulful sweetheart who’s raspy vocals are
as mystifying as the of the Voo Doo portrayed in the amazing music video
for her single, “Neutral Ground.” The 9 minute video not only
showcases Maggie’s blues infused music, but also the magical world of
the Southern swamps. Alongside releasing the music video, this rising
star was recently featured on Bravo’s Top Chef New Orleans theme song
and is currently touring with funk and jazz jam band Galactic. Maggie’s
wetland story accompanied with her fresh, genre-defying sound is sure
to captivate audiences of all sorts.”

American Airlines Center Dallas (front and center pressed up against barricade)
10/7/09, 3) Patty Griffin & Buddy Miller at Dallas HoB 4/16/10.

The ones ruined by rude & chatty audiences, intoxicated & unprofessional
musicians or my vertical challenges.
Any thoughts, experiences about
I’ve only played there once before with Galactic on 6/2/13 at Hartwood Acres
for their summer concert series. I had an incredible time. It was beautiful out
there, and we started our set as the sun was going down. The audience was so
vast and full of good energy. We had a fine time dancing all night.
Thanks, Maggie. Hartwood Acres is the best. Free music in a beautiful setting. Really can’t beat that.
