Two-time Grammy® Award Winners, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer celebrate their 45th recording, Get Up & Do Right. They 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 defies a brief description, perhaps “well rounded Americana” does it best. “As close to flawless folk/bluegrass as it gets.” — Billboard Magazine

($12 / $15 DOS)
While strongly rooted in bluegrass, old-time, and folk music, Wisconsin-based Horseshoes and Hand Grenades produces a sound that draws on the vaults of music collectively and individually enjoyed throughout the course of their lives thus far. The music doesn’t lend itself well to categories or boundaries.

TDM3’s sound is garage-y ragtime, punkified blues, old n’ new timey without settling upon a particular era, inspired as much by mountain music as by Preservation Hall jazz.
