“As close to flawless folk/bluegrass as it gets.” – Billboard Magazine
“Possibly the most popular act of the weekend was the American duo Cathy Fink + Marcy Marxer, who held a capacity crowd spellbound with their traditional and contemporary songs, and even the odd yodel.” – Western Leader, Auckland, NZ (The Auckland Folk Festival, New Zealand)
Two-time Grammy Award Winners, Cathy Fink + Marcy Marxer are master musicians with a career spanning over 35 years. Their superb harmonies are backed by instrumental virtuosity on the guitar, five-string banjo, ukulele, mandolin, cello-banjo, and many other instruments. An eclectic folk festival on their own terms, their repertoire ranges from classic country to western swing, gypsy jazz to bluegrass, and old-time string band to contemporary folk including some original gems. Their versatility defes a brief description, perhaps “well rounded Americana” does it best.
In February 2017, the duo will release their 45th recording, GET UP AND DO RIGHT. The album features duets of some of their favorite songs by songwriters such as Alice Gerrard, Tom Paxton, Ola Belle Reed and David Francey, with an original tune and song for good measure.
Cathy + Marcy have performed at hundreds of bluegrass and folk festivals and taught at close to 100 music camps. The Washington Area Music Association has recognized the duo with over 60 WAMMIE Awards for folk, bluegrass and children’s music. They have performed with Pete Seeger, Theodore Bikel, Tom Paxton, Patsy Montana, Riders in the Sky and a wide range of other musical luminaries.
In May, the duo brings their lifetime of experience to the stage at Hugh’s Room Live. Tickets on sale right now.
