Margaret Esta Vaughn Allen, better known as Marghi, began playing piano before she was six years old. Her Granny, a fabulous rag-time piano player, gave her lessons. At 14, Marghi took up guitar. She wrote down her first song at 15 and has written songs steadily since then. She attended the University of Kansas where she began playing gigs in local bars. After graduation she lived in both London and Paris. In London, she played local pubs. In Paris she played on the streets and in the Metro. When she returned to the United States, she moved to New York. She was a regular on Bleeker Street playing weekly at the "Dugout" where she met her husband, Mick. They moved to San Francisco in 1985 and Marghi began playing with a blues band, Hired Gun, that morphed into a mostly chick band called the Gunrunners. They played weekly at Bouncers Bar and in North Beach. Marghi, Mick and their son, Justin now live in Colorado Springs.
