WTMD is thrilled to host Cathy & Marcy with special guest Sonia De Los Santos for this bilingual performance of “Sing To Your Baby” at WTMD!
Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer have won two Grammys, and 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.
A few years ago, Cathy & Marcy published “Sing To Your Baby,” a picture book with songs which was featured on NPR and won a Parent’s Choice Gold Award. This past fall, they followed it up with “Cantale A Tu Bebe,” the Spanish edition of “Sing To Your Baby,” lovingly translated by bilingual artists and native Spanish speakers Sonia De Los Santos and Jorge Anaya.
Cathy & Marcy have performed at hundreds of bluegrass and folk festivals and taught at close to 100 music camps. The Washington Area Music Association has recognized the duo with over 60 WAMMIE Awards for folk, bluegrass and children’s music. They have performed with Pete Seeger, Theodore Bikel, Tom Paxton, Patsy Montana, Riders in the Sky and a wide range of musical luminaries.
Saturday Morning Tunes is an award-winning, family friendly concert series featuring stars of the children’s music scene, hosted at the WTMD performance studio in Towson!
Doors open at 9 a.m. and the music runs from 9:30 a.m.-11 a.m. Each performance has an opening act as well as a headliner.
We have snacks (organic fig bars and fruit strips) as well as drinks (Horizon milk and Honest juice) from Eddie’s of Roland Park, which are included in the ticket price for all kids. Race Pace Bicycles also sets up bicycles with training wheels for children to ride around the enclosed plaza outside our studio, and we have coffee from Garrison Forest School and arts and crafts from The Walters Art Museum. Other sponsors include Maryland Excels, (cool) progeny, ClimbZone White Marsh and Eddie’s of Roland Park.
The WTMD performance studio is a bright, clean environment with comfy furniture that’s ideal for climbing and sitting. Both our men’s and women’s bathrooms have stainless steel changing tables, and stools for our bathroom sinks.
Also — kids under 2 are free! However, please reserve a free spot for your kid(s) under 2 so we know how many little ones to expect. And Family Four Packs can be used with any combination of adults and children.
