Fink, Marxer and Gleaves in the Lounge
Wed, Jul 18 8:00 pm
GRAMMY® Award winners CATHY FINK & MARCY MARXER and Appalachian artist SAM GLEAVES have built their programs on a musical friendship already five years old. Featuring the music they love from Appalachia as well as contemporary songs that keep alive the tradition of singing for social justice, they combine fiddle, banjo, mandolin, ukulele and guitar to accompany their honed trio harmonies or driving square dance tunes. Each live performance by the trio brings energy, entertainment and engaging stories that surround the songs. FINK, MARXER, GLEAVES will release their debut recording, "SHOUT AND SHINE," in June 2018. The record draws on the trio's diverse influences, featuring original songs by Fink and Gleaves, old time country songs, and songs written by celebrated songwriters Alice Gerrard, Tom Paxton, and Jim Beloff. The record honors folk music matriarchs Elizabeth Cotten, Jean Ritchie and Maybelle Carter with new interpretations of songs from their repertoires.
