"Mara’s voice is instantly stunning, with its piercing beauty, pinpoint pitch, and a warm and comforting vibrato. Our audience loved her show, and, as a presenter, I found her to be a solid professional, dedicated to her art, charming to her fans, and a joy to work with in the business of making music a pleasure."  - Mark Schaffer, co-chair 2011 New Jersey Folk Project Festival
