Margaret Wysman was born and raised in Chatham, Ontario, and she is the youngest of nine siblings.
From 1985 to 1991 Margaret attended The University of Western Ontario, worked in molecular genetics research at UWO for a couple of years, taught laboratory courses, and in 1991, did a short stint as a field ecologist for the Ministry of Natural Resources in Wingham, Ontario. Although she was a science major in Western’s Ecology and Evolution program, Margaret loved variety, and consequently, she enrolled in English Literature and psychology courses and taught herself to play the guitar.From 1987 until 1993 she belonged to a Christian folk group, The 53RD Musicians. Margaret played some key musical roles in this group. In addition to creating many new harmonies and arrangements for the songs in their repertoire, she sang, played guitar, recorder, penny whistle, mandolin, and often provided comic relief.
From August of 1997 to March of 1999 some 25 songs were penned and performed by Margaret at a variety of venues in Bruce, Grey and Kent Counties. She has performed for several events at the CAW Family Education Centre in Port Elgin, including anniversaries of the Montreal Massacre, The Women’s International Dinners, political rallies for Ontario Teachers’ Federations, and CAW Cultural Nights. She has been a regular performer at The Songbird Cafe in Durham, at The Storybook Cafe in Southampton and for the Candlelight Music Series in Southampton. Also, she has opened for Keating-Jones at the annual Sing Out Cafe at Glencolton Farms and has played for the students at Saugeen District Secondary several times.
