Marji and Bruce
August 29, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Acoustic guitarist and vocalist Marji Zintz, living and performing in the Catskills/Hudson Valley region of New York, is a gifted, soulful interpreter performing a hybrid of contemporary folk, rock, and jazz. “Marji puts an indelibly personal stamp on songs from such diverse writers as Aimee Mann, Mark Knopfler, and George Gershwin…and accompanies her voice with sophisticated and skillful guitar work.” ~The Folk Project
With a voice that has been likened to Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Eva Cassidy, Shawn Colvin, and Billie Holiday, Marji has performed thousands of shows and has recorded as a soloist and in larger ensembles in the jazz and folk genres, such as a mostly a capella recording and performance project called “Sister Sound.”
In addition to her extensive solo work, Marji is currently part of an exciting new project, “Becoming Human,” with Jim Kunkel on guitars and Mickey Kopchak on effects & bass and vocals, and occasionally Ron Wilson on drums/percussion, performing original songs of observation, realization, and transformation. Becoming Human defies categorization, but it has the improvisational feel of jazz and the soulful feeling of folk/rock/alternative.
Bruce Milner, inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the 1960’s band “Every Mothers’ Son,” has performed in many musical contexts over the years, including the band “Prana,” a five-voice a cappella group who used their breath to make sound to relax the body, still the mind, and open the heart. Their sound was a unique blend of western folk, jazz, and choral music influenced by the music of India, Tibet, Tuva, Mongolia, Bulgaria, and Georgia, with a strong emphasis on vocal harmonics.
Together, Marji and Bruce perform well-loved material that goes perfectly with a sweet summer hang at a beautiful little spot on the planet.
