The inimitable Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer are an eclectic folk festival on their own terms. Their superb harmonies are backed by instrumental virtuosity on the guitar, five-string banjo, ukulele, mandolin and cello-banjo. The duo has released 48 recordings, won recognition as both songwriters and tradition bearers, and opened doors for countless other musicians. From social justice to the history of women in country music, Django style jazz to bluegrass and old time music, they are a rare eclectic duo that ties it all together-past, present and future. The Boston Globe called them “Spellbinding acoustic musicians, with a rare mastery of American roots style”, and Billboard Magazine noted that Fink and Marxer are“as close to flawless folk/bluegrass as it gets.”
This concert will be outdoors on Hill Center’s West Plaza. Beer, wine, and other concessions will be available for purchase!
