“Everyone at the Roslindale Village Farmers market had an amazing time with Marcie. She brought so much energy and excitement to the event! Even in a very large outdoor space like ours, she drew a huge group of people, and every person in the crowd was completely absorbed in the performance. Five stars for Marcie!”
