Maggie Baugh

Maggie Links

When Maggie Baugh was two years old, she asked her Mom for a violin after seeing one played on TV.   At five, after asking again, and again, Maggie finally received her first violin lesson.  Maggie started the Suzuki method and enjoyed playing.Then, Maggie met Amber Leigh, and fell in love with Bluegrass, Celtic, and Country Music and she started playing the fiddle!  Maggie played with passion.   Maggie continued her classical training with Ruby Berland.   Under Ruby’s lessons, Maggie passed her audition into Bak Middle School for the Arts in Palm Beach County, Florida!  The summer before entering 6th grade a Bak, Maggie and her family went to Cashiers, North Carolina for the Cashiers Bluegrass festival.   That is where Maggie met Suite Caroline Kole.   Maggie watched Caroline perform, on the weekend of Caroline’s 14th birthday, and the same weekend she signed with Sony Records! 

 Maggie was amazed!  After the show, Caroline talked, one on one with Maggie, offering insightful wisdom.   Caroline told Maggie to play everywhere, until someone important notices.   Maggie started writing a song that night.
When school started, Maggie wanted more than only the classical music, so she attended the Old Time and Bluegrass Jam at the Elks Club in Pompano Beach and met the amazing Charles Anton.   Charles became Maggie’s fiddle instructor, and one of his first comments, was “put a guitar in that girls hands.   Maggie started playing with a guitar borrowed from her cousin, Nikki Friend.   Fiddle lessons with Mr. Anton, became a mixture of fiddle, guitar and new music.  Playing for family and friends was not enough.  In early January, Maggie went to an open mic night at the Chrystal Hartigan Presents, Singer Songwriter Showcase, at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

On September 21,2012 Maggie Baugh won the Tween Girl Style Magazine’s “Share Your Talent” contest after two weeks of open online voting.  Maggie will be interviewed and appear in the magazine.  On September 23, 2012, Maggie performed live on WLRN 91.3 FM radio station.   Maggie was interviewed on the Mike Stock Folk and Acoustic Music Show, and played live, three original songs.  Maggie has played at Tutti Frutti Yogurt Shop, and opened for Bill Hartman at Kevro’s Art Bar in Delray Beach.   When school started in August of 2012, Maggie played her song “Middle School” to the incoming class of 500 sixth graders at their first school assembly.  

 At the age of 11, playing on a borrowed guitar, in front of 200 people, Maggie played and performed an original song titled “Back in Time.”    Later in January, Maggie flew to Austin, Texas with her father to try out for America’s Got Talent.   After auditioning with “Orange Blossom Special”, Maggie’s only real interest in Austin was playing violin on the street.   There were other musicians on the street, and Maggie was fixated on playing.   She drew large crowds, and made $100, that Friday evening in an hour of playing on 6th Street.   Saturday afternoon, Maggie found the guitar of her dreams.  She bought it right away, and played both Guitar and Fiddle on 6th Street that night.  In Austin, Maggie fell in love with her new guitar, and with performing for crowds.Maggie continued to write songs and play every chance she could.   She sang a new song at Chrystal Hartigan Presents, in January, February, April and June.   Every song got better, and Maggie improved with every performance.
But Middle School, 6th Grade, is tough, especially for girls.   Maggie had problems with bullying and friendships, and found an outlet for these strong emotions by writing “Middle School” and “You”.   “Middle School” is a girls point of view, about the first year of middle school, and “YOU” is about thinking someone is special, then finding out that they are not.Summer 2012 was here, and Maggie wanted to PLAY.   Maggie entered talent shows, competitions, open mics and played anywhere she could play, for anyone that would listen.   During a family vacation, while shopping a roadside flea market in Cherokee, Maggie started playing on a guitar, and a fiddle at the music store.   Rovenia Miller, a local radio personality stopped and listened to Maggie and told her to enter the Texaco Country Showdown, a nationwide talent show.   On July 22, at the Round up in Davie, FL, Maggie won second place in the 99.9 Kiss Country Texaco Country Showdown.   Ciara Rae won first place with her very cool song “Wild One”. Maggie is was very excited for her first trip to Nashville and cannot wait to play her original song “Tennessee Dream”, co-written with Keith Ridenour.  Maggie will be recording this new song at the hi-tech Markee Music studio, in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
