Fri 1/7/22 - Anya Hinkle

Seekers Church, 276 Carroll St NW, Washington, DC 20012 

"Once you hear Anya Hinkle sing you will want to hear her again. Add that to her band Tellico, and original songwriting and you will be hooked...If you get a chance to see her perform, take it!" 

--Bluegrass Today 

With vivid storytelling, vibrant musicianship and arresting honesty, Anya Hinkle & Tellico explore the beauty of song craft through the lens of the Appalachian string band tradition. Originally from the mountains of Virginia, Anya’s music is steeped in the tones of folk and bluegrass and seasoned by travels across the world. 

Tour highlights in 2019 include tours in Japan and France and performances at MerleFest, La Roche Bluegrass Festival (Europe’s largest), Albino Skunk, and the North Carolina Folk Festival. 2020 will also feature international tours to the Netherlands and Japan, and the release of a new album on Organic Records expected by year’s end. 

Hinkle won the MerleFest Chris Austin Songwriting Competition in 2019 and was a finalist in the Hazel Dickens Song Contest. Tellico’s album Woven Waters, produced by Irish guitar legend John Doyle (Transatlantic Sessions, Joan Baez, Tim O’Brien) and out on Organic Records had a #1 single, #1 band and #2 album ranking on the Folk DJ charts in November 2018.

Fri 1/21/22 - Bruce Molsky & Tony Trishcka

Fri, Jan 21, 2022 

Saint Mark Presbyterian Church, 10701 Old Georgetown Rd, Rockville, MD 

This double-bill features two master musicians at the top of their craft, honoring their roots while creating innovative new traditions. In a career that has now encompassed four decades, acclaimed banjo innovator Tony Trischka has created an endless array of new possibilities for the five-string banjo. While he has mastered nearly every element of the instrument's stylistic history — from old-time modal clawhammer to the most intricate melodic modern styles — it was folk music initially, and bluegrass music in particular, that first drew him to the banjo. In addition to his banjo playing superstar status, he also produced Steve Martin’s Grammy nominated Rare Bird Alert record (Rounder). Grammy nominated and Berklee College of Music’s Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Program, Bruce Molsky stands today as one of the world's premier old-time fiddler and one of the defining virtuosi of Appalachia's timeless folk music traditions. In addition to a prolific solo career, he frequently joins genre-busting super-groups and artists such as Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny's Mozaik, and has recorded as a special guest on legendary guitarist Mark Knopfler’s recent CD, Tracker.

More about Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer :

TWO-TIME GRAMMY® Award Winners, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer 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 more. 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). 

Cathy & Marcy have performed at hundreds of bluegrass and folk festivals and taught at close to 100 music camps worldwide. Happily known as “social music conductors” ready to start a jam session, a community sing, or create a music camp helping others learn to play and sing, the duo’s past students include Kaki King and Rhiannon Giddens.

More about Tom Paxton : 

Tom Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends, and community. 

In describing Tom Paxton’s influence on his fellow musicians, Pete Seeger has said: “Tom’s songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woody Guthrie, they’re becoming part of America.” Pete goes on: “In a small village near Calcutta, in 1998, a villager who could not speak English sang me What Did You Learn In School Today? in Bengali! Tom Paxton’s songs are reaching around the world more than he is, or any of us could have realized. Keep on, Tom!”
