Si Kahn
Si Kahn
Charlottean Si Kahn is an international folk and bluegrass music legend. At almost 72 years old,he is at the peak of his powers as performer, songwriter and recording artist. Si’s musical body of work includes 16 albums of his own original songs; a CD of original songs for children, Good Times and Bedtimes; a collection of traditional labor and civil rights songs recorded with Pete Seeger and Jane Sapp; and the songs and/or scripts for seven musicals.

Ironically, Si has never even attempted to earn a living as a musician. For over 50 years, he’s worked professionally as a civil rights, labor and community organizer. He once described his music as “a hobby that got out of hand” – which indeed it has.
The Looping Brothers
The Looping Brothers
Here they are- not just a Trio but a quality Bluegrass act. Ulrich Sieker (fi,mand.,guit.voc.), Matthias Malcher (guit.,bj.,voc.) and Ralf Strotmann (bass, voc.) formed their project in 1996 after playing Bluegrass with the renowned Band "Groundspeed" all over Europe and in the USA for about two decades.

The Looping Brothers play typical Bluegrass instruments like fiddle and banjo, mandolin and guitar with a great selection of traditional songs as well as original material.

Competent picking is combined with tasteful harmony singing. A concert with the Looping Brothers will get you in the atmospheric mood of authentic American Mountain Music and then suddenly shock you with the essences of dry Westphalian humor. Right now the trio is reaching out for an even wider audience, playing major festivals and successfully helping the interest in Bluegrass Music in the Old World grow.

The Looping Brothers play music in the tradition of the old Brother-Duets as well as Bluegrass tunes.
Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer
Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer
TWO-TIME GRAMMY® Award Winners, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer are an eclectic folk festival on their own terms. Their superb harmonies are backed by instrumental virtuosity on the guitar, five-string banjo, ukulele, mandolin and cello-banjo. The duo released their 46th and 47th recordings in 2018, “Zoom A Little Zoom” (songs by Hy Zaret of “Unchained Melody) and “Shout and Shine” (trio album with Sam Gleaves).

Boston Globe called them “Spellbinding acoustic musicians, with a rare mastery of American roots styles.”

Billboard Magazine said, “As close to flawless folk/bluegrass as it gets.”
