IMT : All Wigged Out, Down to the Wire!


Fundraising for Marcy Marxer's "All Wigged  Out"
  All  summer Institute of Musical Traditions has been helping to  raise funds for Marcy Marxer's "All Wigged Out" and as the final musical and video work comes closer to full realization, we're  doing a big push to make sure Cathy and Marcy have everything they need.
  We here  at IMT are sure that David Eisner has a baseball  metaphor he could use here, but we here at IMT do not feel we should encourage  him - and solely wish to encourage Cathy and Marcy in supporting  this production, and it's service to anyone going through cancer, their  healthcare team, loved ones and community!
  You can  support "All Wigged Out" via Facebook here - or find out more about the  program on here!
  Tuesday night open mic at the SPRING
  Join us  for a weekly celebration of one of the SOURCES of creativity and performance  for any local scene, open mic night! Every Tuesday night we invite  beginners and pros and everyone in between to come share their talents in the  courtyard of the beautiful Sandy Spring Museum – or just  come listen! Details and online registration through Upcoming featured artists include Chris Titchner, Joey Jenkins, Adele  McAllisteranna PS and Mark  "Muleman" Massey.






As  above, Institute of Musical Traditions is pleased to assist in sponsoring “ALL WIGGED OUT: THE MUSICAL” starring  Marcy Marxer. Mainstays of the roots music scene in the greater Washington  area, mentors to generations of musicians, and heroines in family music, Cathy  Fink & Marcy Marxer have continuously created music and events that serve  the community. This production is a service to anyone going through cancer,  their healthcare team, loved ones and community. 
  IMT is helping raise $100,000 to help cover the  costs of a high end film production of the musical - a pivot from the live performances  originally planned before the pandemic closed theaters. All  donations are fully tax-deductible either via GoFundMe or  via check made directly to IMT with “ALL WIGGED OUT” in the memo section.

  One of our fellow local-music organizations, FocusMusic is  maintaining a great list of their alumni performers' upcoming webstreams. We've  got a lot of crossover with FocusMusic - take a look at
