Gathering Time w/special guest, Mara Levine
Gathering Time is an internationally touring folk-rock harmony trio in the spirit of the '60s and beyond, playing original, 60's-70's folk rock, and traditional tunes. Like a co-ed CSN, GT is known for astute songwriting, spirited and accomplished musicianship - and a stellar vocal blend. The stage chemistry of Stuart Markus, Hillary Foxsong and Gerry McKeveny makes clear that they take the music (if not themselves) very seriously, yet their infectious energy wins over even fans who never considered themselves folkies.
Gathering Time is one of the few acts to have two successive #1 and four successive top-5 albums on the Folk Alliance International Folk DJ chart. Their current album, "OLD FRIENDS", was #1 for September 2020, which with 5 songs in the top 25, made them the #1 artist as well.
Called one of the best singers of her generation by Christine Lavin, folksinger and jewelry designer Mara Levine has been creating beautiful interpretations of fine traditional and contemporary folk songs for many years. Her latest CD, Facets of Folk, received stellar reviews and was the #1 album, with the #1 song and #1 artist positions on the FAI Folk DJ Chart for January 2019, and it placed #3 overall for 2019, and Mara was the #2 artist of the year.
