Multiple GRAMMY Award winners Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer perform a rare all-ages show with Portland family music star, Red Yarn. Cathy & Marcy’s roots and acoustic songs celebrate good times and family fun. From folk to pop and in between, with harmonies, guitars, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles and more, the duo presents a full-out music party of timeless songs and audience participation. Trailblazers in children’s and family music, Cathy & Marcy’s relationship with family audiences spans over 30 years of live performances and 20 award-winning recordings including two GRAMMY Awards, 14 GRAMMY nominations and over 100 major awards. They play dozens of instruments from banjo to mandolin to rockin’ electric guitar, steel drum and ukulele.
Portland’s Red Yarn is a dynamic family performer who weaves folksongs and puppetry into interactive shows for all ages. With his wildly energetic performances and lush folk-rock recordings, Red Yarn spreads positive values while reinvigorating American folk music for younger generations. Red Yarn’s most recent album, Deep Woods Revival, is receiving rave reviews and radio play across the country. It is “highly recommended” by children’s music blog Zooglobble, with the #1 song for two weeks straight on Sirius XM Kids Place Live. The new album also just won a 2015 NAPPA Gold Award.
