Folk duo to play Garfield Saturday
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
