Mara Levine and Gathering Time

Edison, NJ

Called “one of the best singers of her generation” by Christine Lavin, Bell Buckle Records artist Mara Levine selects songs with inherent beauty, then crafts them to a glittering brilliance. According to folk singer Si Kahn, “Layering harmony line on top of harmony line, Levine creates rich tapestries of sound and emotion.” Her critically acclaimed albums Facets of Folk and Jewels and Harmony were each #1 on the Folk Alliance International Chart upon release, finishing their respective years at #3.  She’s appeared at venues, festivals and on radio programs in the US, Canada, and Europe. Mara will be supported by the harmony trio Gathering Time (Stuart Markus, Gerry McKeveny, and Christine Sweeney). They have been touring separately and together on the folk circuit for about 15 years and create beautiful three- and four-part harmonies that enchant and delight their audiences with thoughtful song choices, creative harmonies, rich instrumentation, and exuberant singing.
