Biography


Marion has a musical career spanning 25 years, in genres as diverse as thrash metal and grand opera and has performed to audiences of all sizes, from 30 school children to 20,000 festival go-ers. With a voice which has been described as 'mesmerising' and 'siren-esque', and as a string player, she has been part of the folk world since being recruited into Stratford based folkies Meet On The Ledge in 1999. 

She is probably best known as a member of The Jigantics (which includes Martin Fitzgibbon of ColvinQuarmby and the original Rocky Horror band! Random fact, but for info see here) and the award winning ColvinQuarmby - now known as The Gerry Colvin Band, and provides string sections on recordings for anyone who can keep the tea flowing quickly enough.

Marion has recently joined with her TRADarr colleague Gregg Cave to form new duo Fleetwood Cave - see what we did there - the facebook page here and the website here

She has appeared live with, amongst many others, Feast of Fiddles, Gigspanner, Little Johnny England and Leatherat.

She plays Bridge Instruments violin and cello, a Scouse viola made by Robert Hull, Yamaha, Tanglewood, Ibanez and Faith guitars and an Ozark mandolin. She can never find the power cable for her flash Zoom effects pedal, so mostly goes through her Boss one - smaller, but which still has wah-wah....but she's discovered the joys of a proper Fletcher-esque pedal board....

A full back catalogue of her recordings with Meet on The Ledge can be found on their website here
