Hello NERFA friends,

I am Mari Black, Boston-based folk and multistyle fiddler, and I am honored to be invited as a Formal Showcase Artist with my World Fiddle Ensemble (trio with myself, guitar, and bass)! I am looking for couple of informal showcase opportunities on Thursday / Friday, and would be very grateful to folks who would consider hosting me in your guerrilla showcase room!

Many thanks!
