Woody and Marcia McKenzie have been playing together since they were married in 1983. Marcia plays mandolin, guitar and clawhammer banjo. Woody is accomplished on guitar, tenor banjo, and concertina, but his greatest love is the fiddle. Over the years, Marcia has added rhythm piano, bodhran, concertina, a little ukelele, and various whistles. But her favorite, and most powerful, instrument is her voice.
