We welcome The McKenzies from Lynchburg, VA as they thrill us with their tunes and Nick Boulet calls dances for the evening!
This very active band brings you their unique blend of contemporary and original folk, traditional music of southern Appalachia and the British Isles. They are a joy to listen to and dance to and like opportunities to share their love of this kind of music through concerts, dances and teaching.
Marcia plays the mandolin, guitar and clawhammer banjo. Over the years, she has added rhythm piano, bodhran (a hand drum), concertina, and various whistles.
Woody is accomplished on guitar, tenor banjo, and concertina, but his greatest love is the fiddle.
Sample their music on their Youtube channel at: www.youtube.com/user/WoodyandMarcia
