"'THE PIANIST' TAKES GRASP OF YOUR SENSES
AND KEEPS YOU HOLDING YOUR BREATH.

Adrien Brody is pitch-perfect. Roman Polanski reprises, maybe even
eclipses, the brilliance of his 'Rosemary's Baby' and 'Chinatown' heyday."

A

song about people who
have survived sexual assault
and a sona b that makes fun
of singer-songwriters show
the range of the Grammy-nominated
Postcards, the latest CD recorded by
Cathy Fink and Marcy IVIarxer, a duo
likely to perform those numbers at the
26th annual Ann Arbor Folk Festival.
This year's festival runs nvo nights,
Friday-Saturday, Jan 24-25, at Ann
Arbor's Michigan Theater, as Hill
Auditorium undergoes renovations.
The music event benefits The Ark,
Ann Arbor's nonprofit venue for folk,
roots and ethnic music.
Friday's performances, beginning at
7 p.m., feature headliner Patty Griffin
and a host of artists who bring a pro-
gressive sound to the folk music scene.
Saturday, headlined by Taj Mahal, will
showcase styles well known to folk and
roots audiences,. in keeping with past
versions of the festival.
Fink and Marxer, instrumentalists
and singers with a sense of humor

about themselves, will be part of the
second-day lineup.
"Marcy and I mostly will be doing
songs from Postcards," says Fink, who
has performed various times for The
Ark over the past 12 years. "That
album is very eclectic, and it includes
traditional and contemporary folk
music as well as swing. -
"We play lots of different kinds of
music because we have approached
our shows playing music we really like.
We find threads that help us tie differ-
ent styles together."
The song about abuse, "Survivors of
the Storm," was written by Fink and
folk legend Tom Paxton. It is based on
stories. Fink heard as co-founder and
board chair of a program that teaches
children how not to be victims of
assault. In contrast, a performer the
duo met while touring
touring Australia
penned "Here Is the
which
makes fun of entertainers.
Also on Postcards is "It's the Girl," a
1940s jazz favorite that contrasts with
"Birds and Ships," a tune with Woody
Guthrie lyrics and music written by
Billy Bragg after Guthrie's death.
