Sweet Resistance: A Call to Carry On the Music and Causes of Jean Ritchie
Featuring Magpie, Ivy & Miranda, and Jon Pickow.
Come honor Jean Ritchie at this special celebration. Musicians will perform Jean
Ritchie's songs and others that embody the
causes she believed in – environmental protection, occupational health and safety, respect
for working people, human rights, and equality for women. The tribute will also connect
the struggles of the past with those of today.
Cosponsored by the Folk Music Society of New York (NY Pinewoods Folk Music Club).
Magpie is Terry Leonino & Greg Artzner. Since 1973 they 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.
Ivy & Miranda (Ivice Rose & Miranda Haydn) met at a singalong in Woodstock in 2009 and have been singing
together ever since. Their repertoire includes songs of heartache, love, war & peace. From traditional to contemporary,
their harmonies capture the music inspiring hope and clarity. Barry Kornhauser will be joining them on cello.
Jon Pickow is the son of Jean Ritchie, and performed with her frequently
from his childhood until her retirement in 2009. Jon specializes in dulcimer and banjo and has appeared at folk
festivals all over the world.
