ABOUT FINK, MARXER, GLEAVES and "SHOUT & SHINE"

This new recording by Cathy Fink, Marcy Marxer and Sam Gleaves is built on a musical friendship already five years old. The trio finds common ground in the music they love from Appalachia as well as contemporary songs that keep alive the tradition of singing for social justice. Fink, Marxer & Gleaves combine fiddle, banjo, mandolin, ukulele and guitar to accompany their honed trio harmonies or driving square dance tunes. Mark Schatz brings his excellent bass playing to the recording. The record draws on the trio's diverse influences, featuring original songs by Fink and Gleaves, traditional gems, old time country songs, and songs written by celebrated songwriters Alice Gerrard, Tom Paxton, and Jim Beloff. The record honors folk music matriarchs Elizabeth Cotten, Jean Ritchie and Maybelle Carter with new interpretations of songs from their repertoires.
