Marcy Marxer is a master multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, performer, and instructor, with over three decades of experience bringing the fun of folk and roots music to audiences and students around the world through her duo with Cathy Fink and through other projects. We’re lucky to have her as our Ukulele instructor on Peghead Nation. 

While Marcy was teaching a lesson on playing a fingerstyle melody on the ukulele, she played a great version of the Johnny Mercer standard “Autumn Leaves,” and you can learn that in her course here on Peghead Nation

Marcy will also be hosting a Facebook Live Q&A session on Peghead Nation’s Facebook on Friday, April 25 at 4pm Eastern time. Be sure to tune in for some great ukulele insight from one of the treasures of the modern folk music community.
