Marc Black

It is always a great pleasure when Woodstock area musical icons come together to perform. Marc Black and Jeff Entin are two of those icons.

Marc Black says that being a songwriter is not just something that he does, it’s who he is. Since his teens, he’s been using songwriting as a way to make sense of the world. While still in high school, his band the Blades of Grass reached the Top Forty and performed alongside the biggest acts of the day, including the Doors, Van Morrison, and Neil Diamond. Black became known for his fingerstyle blues in the tradition of Mississippi John Hurt, Lightin’ Hopkins, and Tim Hardin.

Black has recorded more than a dozen CDs including one “pick hit” in Billboard Magazine and another that was recognized as a minor masterpiece by famed music producer John Hammond, Sr. He has performed and recorded with such musical luminaries as 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. Black’s song “No Fracking Way,” recorded with John Sebastian, has become a worldwide anthem for the anti-fracking movement. One of his recent CD’s, Pictures of the Highway, remained in the top 5 of the Roots Rock Internet top 50 for six months. Black was inducted into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame in June of 2014.

He spends much of his time on the road, playing festivals, clubs, arts centers, libraries, and house concerts.

“Marc is a master at spreading the joy of music.” – Happy Traum

“Marc Black carves something beautiful out of life’s rawest emotions.” – JD Goldsmith, Pulse Magazine

Jeff Entin is an area resident who’s been writing and performing all his life. He is known for his genial stage presence, highly accomplished musicianship, improvisation, song writing, and a unique approach to covering a wide variety of other artists. Audiences familiar with Flying Cat Music who may have noted the handsome graphic design of our posters and flyers might be surprised to learn we owe it all to our volunteer graphic designer Jeff Entin.
