   2:00 PM  -  2:00 PM Music Series: Martin Grosswendt & Susanne Salem-Schatz  
    Contact: Emily Milan   ext. 6113   emilan@clamsnet.org
   

Start with two compelling voices, an uncanny sense of harmony and a deep grounding in traditional American music. Add in stunning guitar work and a warm, intimate performance style, and what do you get? Martin Grosswendt and Susanne Salem-Schatz. 

Martin is internationally known as an interpreter of pre-war blues and other roots music, who began his career accompanying and recording with the legendary folk musicians such as U Utah Phillips, Rosalie Sorrels, and Jim Ringer and Mary McCaslin. Susanne is a veteran of the Boston roots music scene, and slips seamlessly into any genre, making it her own; soulful blues singer one minute, sassy honky-tonk gal the next.  

Together they embrace a deep love and respect for the roots of classic blues, old time, early country, and honky-tonk.  At the same time, they make the music their own, presenting it with style, grace and wit.
