Music Salon in Waltham Invites Creative People to Gather

Linda Marks, founder of The Music Salon, in Waltham, is providing a place for musicians and other creative artists to perform and share their work in a warm, welcoming home setting. Marks, a singer and songwriter, says that she created the salon after seeing a reduction in the number of live local music venues.

“Almost all the piano bars in Boston have been replaced by venues with flatscreen televisions,” says Marks. “We’re offering a ‘bottom up’ approach to providing live music in the intimate setting of someone’s living room. It may be a much needed antidote for musicians and lovers of music.”

Singer and vocal coach Sandi Hammond will present Optimally Enhancing Your Vocal Performance at The Music Salon on February 7. On February 22, father-son duo Jack and Jesse Gauthier will sing close harmonies, with visual art on display by Rowan Wielblad. “Pianomastress” Bonnie MacLeod will lead an open mic for singers on March 8. There is no fee to attend these events, but donations are collected to provide honoraria for performers and cover the cost of serving refreshments.
