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 52 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. The latest, “ALL NEW” is a double CD collaboration with friend, Tom Paxton, of 28 original songs written by Cathy & Tom, performed live in studio. The award winning film of their comedy musical theater production, “ALL WIGGED OUT” earned a spot on NPR’s Morning Edition and over 20 Film Festival Awards.
