These four women are celebrated artists of multiple banjo styles: Cathy Fink’s clawhammer genius, Hilary Hawke’s bluegrass/ old time mastery, Marcy Marxer’s cello banjo and banjo ukulele innovations; and Cynthia Sayer’s jazz banjo virtuosity. They have individually garnered numerous honors including Grammy Awards, induction into the American Banjo Hall Of Fame, appearances ranging from Broadway to The White House, Merlefest to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and concerts and educational programs worldwide. Together for the first time, these artists will weave in and out of collaborations and solos from Swing Classics to Appalachian Traditions, Original compositions, and more. Don’t miss it!
