When Lin is not working, she is spending time with her three grown-up children Natasha Marsh soprano, Ben Marsh Senior Lecturer Uni of Kent (since Covid, now known as the Marsh family from Faversham!) and Dominic Marsh actor and singer. Not to mention ten wonderful grandchildren who all sing with great enthusiasm. Sometimes, her musician husband John even gets a look in!
