Margie’s work is rich in local folklore and tradition. She has written over a hundred original songs. She has performed many of these herself, but her works have also travelled with other artists across North America and the United Kingdom.
Margie’s writing extends to poetry, plays, and short stories. Her book, And My Name Is . . . Stories Fromthe Quilt (Acorn, 2006), is a collection of short stories about ordinary women with extraordinary skills, gifts, and strengths.
