From Appalachia to China- Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer are joined by versatile Chinese Classical Hammered Dulcimer player Chao Tian for an evening of traditional and contemporary Americana and Chinese music.
TWO-TIME GRAMMY® Award Winners, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer are master musicians with a career spanning over 35 years. Their superb harmonies are backed by instrumental virtuosity on the guitar, five-string banjo, ukulele, mandolin, cello-banjo, and many other instruments.
Chao Tian is a virtuoso of Chinese dulcimer, improvisor, sound designer, and visual artist. Her virtuosity has led to breaking the boundaries, genres, and collaborating across artistic disciplines. In her music, she explores the unique sounds and techniques on Chinese dulcimer to build a multi-dimensional sense in improvisation. Her artistic interest include the synesthesia in cross-disciplinary collaboration – interactions between visual art and music, Chinese musical vocabulary and philosophies in improvisation, and music in response to conflict and healing.
