Record Observer - - News -

CHESTERTOWN — Folk mu­si­cians Martin Gross­wendt and Su­sanne Salem-Schatz will per­form at 7 p.m. Satur­day, Aug. 26, at the Garfield Cen­ter for the Arts.

Gross­wendt is known in­ter­na­tion­ally as an in­ter­preter of pre-war blues and other roots mu­sic. He started his ca­reer record­ing with and ac­com­pa­ny­ing leg­endary folk mu­si­cians such as U. Utah Phillips, Ros­alie Sor­rels, and Jim Ringer and Mary McCaslin.

Salem-Schatz, a life­long singer, is a vet­eran of the Bos­ton roots mu­sic scene.

To­gether, Gross­wendt and Salem-Schatz em­brace a deep love and re­spect for the roots of clas­sic blues, old time, early coun­try and honky-tonk.

They played and sang to­gether for three years in Honky Tonk Mas­quer­ade, a honky-tonk/west­ern swing band, be­fore strik­ing out as an acous­tic duo. Their first CD to­gether, “Old Songs, New Hats,” was re­leased late in 2015.

Tick­ets are $15, and avail­able by call­ing 410-810-2060, on­line at www.Garfield­Cen­ter. org or at the box of­fice. ----On­line: www.mar­t­in­gross­wendt.com/martin-and­su­sanne
