Songs That Honor Working People, featuring Guthrie’s Ghost, Magpie, Bruce Molsky, Adrien Reju & Andy Stack

Formed in Beacon NY on what would have been the 100th birthday of Woody Guthrie, Guthrie’s Ghost is comprised of three separate entities that combine each year for a special tour in celebration of the folk traditions that have given us the music of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie and others that followed. Members include Fred Gillen Jr. (http://www.fredgillenjr.com/) and Steve Kirkman (http://www.stevekirkman.com) together called Hope Machine – a duo who were officially endorsed by the Guthrie Foundation 100th Year Celebration, Jacob and David Bernz (http://www.jacobbernz.com/) who perform as a father-son duo (Jacob is one of the Valley’s most prolific young songwriters and David is a two-time Grammy award-winning producer for Pete Seeger) and Hudson Valley singer/songwriter Julie Corbalis (https://juliecorbalis.com/). Together, they offer modern versions of songs from the great folk catalog and original songs in the trajectory.

Magpie: Since 1973, Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner have brought their unique sound and remarkable versatility to audiences everywhere, featuring traditional and vintage Americana to contemporary and stirring original compositions. With two strong voices in harmony and superb instrumental arrangements, their sound is powerful and moving. Award-winning recording artists, songwriters, musical historians, playwrights, actors and social activists, Terry and Greg are proud to be, as Pete Seeger said of them, “…more links in the chain” dedicating there lives and music to leaving this world a better place.

Bruce Molsky transports audiences to another time and place, with his authentic and personal interpretations of rarities from the Southern Appalachian songbook and other musical traditions from around the globe. Best known for his work on the fiddle, Bruce’s banjo, guitar and his distinctive, powerful vocals also resonate with listeners. His combination of technical virtuosity and relaxed conversational wit makes a concert hall feel like an intimate front porch gathering.

Andy Stack and Adrien Reju are an amazing, talented duo that brings a fresh perspective to some of the music we all know and love in the roots tradition. They also present original compelling music with top-notch musicianship and great vocals with tight harmony.

Together, these artists and some special guests will perform an evening of songs by, for and about the hard working people of America in honor of the Labor Day weekend.
