Edith May’s Paradise is a listening room/house concert space that I run. We have one show a month with a featured artist and an opening act. From time to time we have songwriter’s round robins where the songwriters discuss their songs and some insights into how the song was written. We encourage the audience to ask questions and join in the discussion.
Mom & Pop’s Toys (coming soon)- when you come to EMP you will notice many old toys and Americana all over the walls and in showcases. The toys came from my father’s family’s toy store. You will see some of these toys and the history of Mauler Brothers.

“Yes, you’re entering a private residence, but the moment you descend into the EMP performance area, you’re going to realize that ACTUALLY this private residence houses one of the best venues in the DC metropolitan area.”
– Rob Hinkal
October’s Featured Artists
“…Energetic folk-ish pop-rock with strong main melodies and catchy choruses.
Great lead and harmony vocals; passionate lyrics about personal and societal matters.
I guarantee we will be hearing more from this crew.”
Ken Roseman (Music Journalist at “Sing Out!”)
with Special Guest
“Michelle Murray expresses the friendly tones of folk through a metallic-ting of acoustic guitar plucking and welcoming vocals. Her lyrics aren’t quite as “day in the life” as the likes of Randy Newman but they are just as light-hearted.”
Washington Post MP3 Editor’s Picks – For the song “Married Women.”
