Folk Singers Fink and Marxer to Perform at Hopkins

Three-time Grammy-nominated folk duo Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer will give a concert, "Celebrating Folk Tradition," at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 10, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

As longtime troubadours on the folk scene, Fink and Marxer have won praise for their tight harmony, song writing and interpretations of traditional folk music. They sing, yodel, harmonize, spin tales and reach out to the audience, which takes part in their celebration of the folk tradition. They draw on traditional and contemporary folk, country, swing and world music. Their songs consider topics from love to labor and history to today's news, and include comedy about middle age and parenting. They accompany themselves on acoustic and electric guitar, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, steel drums, penny whistle and percussion instruments.

Between them, Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer have released more than 30 albums and videos. Three of their recent family recordings earned five national awards. The Washington Area Music Association has awarded them 31 WAMMY awards for folk, bluegrass, instrumental and children's music. This concert is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by the university's Office of Special Events, now in its 36th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. All programs in the series are held from noon to 1 p.m. in Shriver Hall on the Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. They are open to the public, admission is free, and no tickets are required. For information, call 410-516-7157.
