Margie’s parents came from north Kerry, and she made many trips to Ireland in her younger years. Her grand-uncle Jerry Mulvihill was a popular step dancer of the old Munster school. Fiddler and music teacher Martin Mulvihill was a cousin. She studied music with him, playing piano accordion and tin whistle, and was part of his All-Ireland champion Glinside Ceili Band. With Kerry singer Mary Courtney and fiddler Carmel Johnston, she formed the trio Morning Star, which stayed together with various musicians for twenty years. After the band broke up, Margie took up the wooden flute and studied with Mike Rafferty. Margie is a music teacher with the Pearl River School. Her daughters Erin, Blaithín and Neidín Loughran, and her son John Paul Reynolds, are all outstanding musicians.
