MAGPIE

Saturday – February 20 – 7:30 pm

With a career that has spanned forty years, Magpie has traveled the globe, bringing its unique sound and breathtaking versatility to audiences everywhere. Award-winning recording artists, songwriters, musical historians and social justice activists, Greg Artzner and Terry Leonino always promise a presentation that is highly entertaining as well as provocative and deeply moving.

Magie performs various folk music styles, including traditional, classic blues, country, jazz and Celtic, as well as songs by musical heroes and “sheroes” such as Phil Ochs, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Jean Ritchie, Tom Paxton, Buffy St. Marie and more.

Magpie’s songs touch on historical, cultural and social interests with a large selection focusing on Civil Rights and the environment. Terry and Greg’s sound is that of two very strong voices, one female, one male, in powerful leads and two-part harmony, accompanied by Greg’s virtuoso guitar arrangements, embellished by Terry’s second guitar, harmonica, mandolin and dulcimer. Theirs is a powerful sound, full of passion and fire.

The duo has appeared in national and international demonstrations and protest marches and rallies, sung in jails, on picket lines and churches. Their songs are used today in modern Civil Rights and environmental protection movements, especially Give Light and We Belong to the Earth, which are included in the new group singing songbook, Rise Again, along with six other of their songs.
