Marc Black at the One World Coffeehouse
September 21st, 2019 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The UUCC One World Coffeehouse is delighted to welcome back Marc Black to our Columbia, MD stage!
Marc plays a finger style blues in the traditions of Mississippi Hurt and the great Tim Hardin. A proud road warrior, he was inducted into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame in June of 2014. As WFUV DJ, John Platt wrote about Marc’s song, Sing for the Silenced, “this is a song we need to hear even more than ever now.”
Marc has performed and recorded with Art Garfunkel, Taj Mahal, Richie Havens, Rick Danko and Pete Seeger to name a few. He was recently named Folk Artist of the Year on ABC Radio, and a winner at the Kerrville Folk Festival. Marc’s song, No Fracking Way, recorded with John Sebastian, has become a worldwide anthem for the movement. His Pictures of the Highway CD has reached #6 on the Folk DJ Chart, and his youtube videos have been viewed more than 100,000 times! He has been very involved in several campaigns for social and environmental justice, including his multimedia campaign, Sing for the Silenced and his current call for political engagementment, We Will Sing and Beat the Drum.
In the words of folk legend, Happy Traum, “Marc is a master at spreading the joy of music.”
