Bill Destler and Sarah Murdoch (Special Event)

  • 04 Feb 2018
  • 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Janie Meneely's house (Carroll House), Takoma Park, MD
Help launch a new tradition: Some of the out-of-town guest artists at the 2018 FSGW Midwinter Festival will perform over brunch at a house concert the next day for gas money (or, in the case of Ph.D. physicist Bill Destler, to charge his electric car). A former president of FSGW (and the Rochester Institute of Technology) and a founder of the Baltimore Folk Music Society, Bill is also a world-renowned collector of vintage banjos and features them on three albums of old and new songs. Sarah Murdoch returns to Washington to belt some more old gospel, early blues, murder ballads, and Scots Gaelic folk songs. If you enjoy -- or you miss -- these two talented New Yorkers in the Saturday evening concert at the festival, join them for brunch and a casual concert at Janie Meneely's. $15 suggested donation. RSVP & directions: program@fsgw.org
