Marcy Marxer is a multi-instrumentalist, studio musician, performer, songwriter, and producer with 30 years of experience and a shelf of impressive awards.


She has played acoustic music on Emmy Award-winning National Geographic specials, platinum-shipping Eva Cassidy CDs, and more than 50 recordings and instructional materials created with her partner, Cathy Fink. Marcy’s guitar playing spans a variety of styles—swing rhythm and lead, bluegrass, old-time, Celtic and folk fingerpicking, and some of the most tasteful backup you’ll ever hear. The C.F. Martin Co. has honored Marcy with her very own signature model guitar, the MC3H which she helped design. She also plays mandolin, bouzouki, hammered dulcimer, Latin percussion, banjos, pennywhistle and flutes and, of course, the beloved ukulele.

The fun-loving Marcy is all about connecting music and people. In addition to teaching locally when not on tour, she has created a super-fun international online network for lovers of the mighty ukulele, Ukulele Social Club and has built a large following at top music camps such as Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamp, Mars Hill, Woods Camp, and others.

At Peghead Nation, Marcy will get you started with the mighty dancing flea in Ukulele.
