CATHY FINK & MARCY MARXER

CATHY FINK & MARCY MARXER

TWO-TIME GRAMMY® Award Winners, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer are an eclectic folk festival on their own terms. They have entertained the Queen of Thailand, been keynote singers for the AFL-CIO, performed at hundreds of folk festivals, appeared on the “Today Show” and on National Public Radio. Their superb harmonies are backed by instrumental virtuosity on the guitar, five-string banjo, ukulele, mandolin, cello-banjo, and many other instruments. Their eclectic repertoire includes classic country to western swing, Django style jazz to old-time stringband and bluegrass, contemporary folk and original gems. While their versatility defies a brief description, perhaps “well rounded Americana” does it best.

The duo has released 48th recordings, including “GET UP AND DO RIGHT”, which features duets of songs by other writers such as Alice Gerrard, Tom Paxton, Ola Belle Reed and David Francey, along with a few originals. Other recent recordings include the uke-centric collection, “WAHOO!” and “SHOUT AND SHINE” with Appalachian tradition bearer and songwriter, Sam Gleaves.

Cathy & Marcy have achieved the status of master musicians, but are also happily known as “social music conductors”, ready to start a jam session, mentor an up and coming artist or create an entire music camp to help others learn to play and sing.

At past music camps they have taught Kaki King and Rhiannon Giddens banjo and through their
long relationship with the Music Center at Strathmore’s Artist in Residence program they
have collaborated with and helped the next generation navigate the professional music
world.
