At 6:30 p.m., Saturday, June 15 Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer are Grammy Award Winners for children’s songs and folk music: “As close to flawless folk-bluegrass as it gets.” according to Billboard Magazine. The powerhouse duo has a repertoire of traditional and contemporary folk, old-time country and swing music. Their superb harmonies are backed by instrumental virtuosity on the acoustic & electric guitar, five-string banjo, mandolin, cello banjo, ukulele, percussion and many other instruments. Top it off with a witty stage presence and warm audience rapport and you’ve got a well loved music duo. They’ve earned two Grammy Awards, and nominations, and in 2006 the C.F. Martin Company honored Cathy & Marcy’s musical achievements by creating a signature guitar for each of them, the M3H Cathy Fink Custom Signature Edition and the MC3H Marcy Marxer Custom Signature Edition. They’ve been commissioned by the Kennedy Center; their recorded catalogue of CD’s, DVD’s and instructional materials includes an astounding 45 titles.

Bring your chairs and dancing shoes. The rain location is The Shed  in Old Village Port Royal. For more information, contact ARTworks at 843-279-2787, www.ArtWorksInBeaufort.org.
