Songs of Today, Yesterday and
played on Guitar, Autoharp and
& with Tom Levy on Bass and
on the Guitar, the Appalachian Lap Dulcimer, or the Autoharp, Marti
Rogers sings a wide variety of songs in the folk genre from
traditional to contemporary including some of her own. In her strong, clear voice, she weaves a spell
taking us back to simpler times when people sat on back porches, or around the
hearth making their own music.
Tom's rhythmic bass blends with Marti's skillful flat picking on the guitar.
Marti’s virtuoso autoharp shines on mountain songs, and tunes from the parlors
of the early 1900’s when it first came into vogue. They adeptly mix folk,
old-timey, country, and 20th century songwriters.
From chanteys of the eastern seaports to songs of the old west, their varied
programs cover a range of folk music styles of the cities, towns, and
country-sides of America.
Marti and Tom sometimes get together with friends to form the band “Ole
Rusty Pickup.” More voices, more instruments, even more music.
In addition to numerous coffee houses and clubs, Marti has performed at
community centers, parks, fairs, festivals, nursing homes, retirement
communities, churches, schools, the New York World's Fair, on radio, television,
and the internet. She is a three-time winner of the Folk Factory People's
Choice competition. Marti's CD, "Plain and Fancy" is available from
