Folk duo of Martin Grosswendt and Susanne Salem-Schatz will make its local debut in a house concert Saturday, Nov. 19, at 7:30 p.m.

The concert, the last Rockland Folk Arts concert of 2016, will be held at the home of George Stephens and Kathy Westra, 192 Limerock St.

Plenty of parking is available in the Congregational Church lot next door. Reservations are strongly suggested, since seating is limited; call 593-8068 to reserve a seat. Suggested donation for the concert is $15, with all proceeds going to the performers. Refreshments will be provided.

Martin & Susanne, as they are often dubbed, have compelling voices, an uncanny sense of harmony and a deep grounding in traditional American music, which they combine with stunning guitar work and a warm, intimate performance style.

Grosswendt is internationally known as an interpreter of pre-war blues and other roots music. He started his career recording with and accompanying legendary folk musicians such as U. Utah Phillips, Rosalie Sorrels and Jim Ringer and Mary McCaslin. Salem-Schatz has been singing all her life and slips seamlessly into any genre, making it her own.

Together, they embrace a deep love and respect for the roots of classic blues, old time, early country and honky-tonk. At the same time, they make the music their own, presenting it with style, grace and wit. The duo’s first CD together, “Old Songs, New Hats,” was released late in 2015.

Rockland Folk Arts is an all-volunteer collaborative dedicated to supporting the live performance of folk music in Midcoast Maine. All concert receipts go directly to featured performers.
