GUEST BLOG / By Sande Lollis, Music at the Marston Curator
--For the second year in a row, the Marston House Gardens plays host to an unforgettable end-of-summer music experience.

On September 1, from 3 to 5pm, SOHO presents the first in the series of three outdoor concerts featuring Americana, folk, country, and blues music in a festival of extraordinary women singer-songwriters. 

 Attendees from last year know how magical the experience was, and because they asked us to, we’re doing it again! Set in the welcoming historic rose garden on three Fridays in September, from 3 to 5pm, this concert series offers a unique and intimate setting. There are so many great women artists in San Diego and beyond, and yet women are extremely underrepresented in the music industry, both as songwriters and as producers. 

Marston House is highlighting some of that talent here, to give support where support is needed. Tickets for each show are $10 for SOHO members and $12 for non-members. Space is limited; we encourage the public to get their tickets now to secure their spot. CLICK HERE.

Concertgoers will bring their own lawn chair or blanket for ultimate comfort. We'll have light refreshments available, and guests may bring their own snacks and drinks as well.
