With more than 25 years in the game and nods from icons like Pete Seeger, Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner — known collectively as Magpie — are the quintessential folk duo. Through simple acoustic instrumentation (mandolin and guitar) and lovely harmonies, this Kent, Ohio duo covers virtually every era of folk music, and tells stories from the American Civil War to Depression-era swing with detours into country and blues. Contemporary concerns are also addressed, because a folk singer's work is never done.
Magpie performs Saturday, February 23, 7:30 p.m. at Rochester Christian Reformed Church, 275 Atlantic Ave., Penfield. $10-$18. goldenlink.org.
