announcer, technical director, perennial volunteer, and one of the
greatest supporters of acoustic music ever, Mary Cliff has touched the
lives of most Washingtonians at some point. Tonight’s concert is a love
fest for Mary and her Saturday night radio show, Traditions,
which recently moved from WETA to WAMU.
Featured entertainers include Sue Trainor with Hot
Soup (Trainor, Christina Muir and Jennie Avila), mainstays of
the metro folksong, Magpie, who've just celebrated
their 30th anniversary, Dead Men’s Hollow, standouts
in the local bluegrass and folk music scene (Amy Nazarov
Belinda Hardesty, Caryn Fox, Jared Creason, Marcy Cochran and Mike
Clayberg), virtuoso songbird, Dede Wyland (with Mark
Delaney on banjo, Kip Martin on bass and Frank Solivan II on fiddle),
and Paul and Judy Luis-Watson.
Join us for nostalgia and good cheer as we honor our Mary.
