Sisters in Song - A Live-stream event with Lydia Adams Davis, Judy Kass, Elly Wininger, and Marji Zintz

The Towne Crier Café

Howdy, Friends!

Here’s a Towne Crier show you can attend in your pajamas!

On Sunday, June 28, 2020 at 6:30 pm (EDT), I’ll be sharing the stage with my friends, Elly Wininger, Lydia Adams Davis, and Judy Kass, three women whom I admire and am honored to share a stage with. We’ll be live-streaming the entire show from the Towne Crier’s beautiful stage. You’ll be able to watch this as it live-streams on the Towne Crier’s Facebook Page and on YouTube (thanks to Rick Gedney’s brilliance and help with tech)! I’ll send out a reminder the day of. I hope you can come! So, whatcha gonna wear? ;-)

Sisters in Song is a collaborative project featuring four diverse Hudson Valley-based powerhouses of music: Lydia Adams Davis, Judy Kass, Elly Wininger and Marji Zintz.

A portion of the proceeds from this live-streamed show will go to support The Towne Crier during this challenging time.

Hailed by the New York Times as “a splendid performer” and “one of our finest folk composers,” Lydia Adams Davis is a veteran of the NY folk music scene. Whether composing improvised political satire for a coffeehouse audience or leading an educational sing-a-long for children, Lydia’s energy and exuberance have captivated audiences of all ages across the US and Europe.

Judy Kass draws in her audience with soulful vocals and genre-bending exploration of guitar and piano. Her debut album, “Better Things,” and her CD, “Beyond the Ash and Steel,” both appeared on the Folk DJ List of Top Albums. Judy was recently named First-Place Winner in the Singer/Songwriter category of the 21st Great American Song Contest.

NY Blues Hall of Fame inductee and Adelphi Records recording artist, Elly Wininger is known for her engaging performances and her accomplished finger style guitar playing. She has won numerous awards for her songwriting as well. Also a veteran of the NYC scene in the 70s and 80s, Elly now tours nationally.

Acoustic guitarist/vocalist Marji Zintz is a gifted, soulful interpreter, performing a hybrid of contemporary folk, rock, and jazz. “Marji puts an indelibly personal stamp on songs…and accompanies her voice with sophisticated and skillful guitar work.” – The Folk Project.

See you on the Internet!

This is a private event, but I mention it here because perhaps YOU would like to host a house concert, too! If so, go have a look at www.marjizintz.us/house-concerts, download the PDF, and get inspired!

Marji Opens for Loudon Wainright III

The Towne Crier Café, 379 Main Street, Beacon, New York

This Friday, I'll be the opening act for a remarkable performer: Loudon Wainwright III. It'd be great to see you there!

Born in Chapel Hill, N.C. in 1946, Loudon Wainwright III came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. He had studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, and wrote his first song in 1968 (“Edgar,” about a lobsterman in Rhode Island).

He was soon signed to Atlantic Records by Nesuhi Ertegun, and was lured by Clive Davis to Columbia Records, which released “Dead Skunk.” His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others. Wainwright has recorded 27 albums including his 2010 Grammy Award-winning ‘High, Wide & Handsome.’

In Fall 2018, Loudon released ‘Years In The Making’ (StorySound Records), a 42-song treasury of rare and unreleased Loudoniana. This 2-disc, 60-page hardbound audio-biography of his 40-year career includes orphaned album cuts, lovingly lo-fi home recordings, radio appearances, demos, live performances and beyond. It features appearances by Kate McGarrigle, Suzzy Roche, Bill Frisell, Van Dyke Parks, Chaim Tannenbaum, David Mansfield, and the Wainwright children Rufus, Martha, Lucy and Lexie.

In 2017, Wainwright published his memoir, ‘Liner Notes’ (Blue Rider Press), which led to appearances on Fresh Air with Terry Gross and WTF with Marc Maron. The NY Times said the book “makes your heart wobble on its axis.”

Wainwright also created a one-man theatrical show, “Surviving Twin,” which combines his songs and the writings of his late father. Initially developed as part of University of North Carolina's Playmakers series, it focuses on fatherhood—both being a father and having one—and also explores the issues of birth, self-identity, loss, mortality, fashion, and of course, pet ownership.

Additionally, Wainwright has co-written with songwriter/producer Joe Henry on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit movie “Knocked Up,” written music for the British theatrical adaptation of the Carl Hiaasen novel “Lucky You,” and composed topical songs for NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered” and ABC’s “Nightline.” An accomplished actor, he has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe and Judd Apatow. Wainwright has also starred on TV in “M.A.S.H.” and “Undeclared,” and on Broadway in “Pump Boys and Dinettes.” More recently, he appeared in the film “Pleased To Meet You” (with fellow musicians John Doe, Aimee Mann and Joe Henry).
