Martin Grosswendt & Susan Salem-Schatz, January 16

Martin Grosswendt and Susanne Salem-Schatz make beautiful music together, with soul that comes from deep within. Together, they explore the highways and byways of American traditional and vernacular music, from pre-war blues, old time and jug band to jazz standards, honky tonk and contemporary gems.  Their fans revel in the powerful mix of genres the duo embraces in their performances, crossing time and space with grace and a touch of wry humor.
Martin is a multi-instrumentalist, internationally known as an inspirational interpreter of pre-war blues and other southern roots music.  His extraordinary instrumental skills are matched by his powerful, soulful vocals.  Musical partner Susanne is a remarkable singer, adding rock solid rhythm, a keen ear for harmony, and dynamic interpretations of songs old and new.  Together they demonstrate the exponential power of two.  Martin and Susanne’s harmonies work magic on songs both sweet and slow and rough and rowdy, with a vocal alchemy that touches listeners deeply.  These musicians were meant to sing together. Martin and Susanne have created strong connections with audiences since they began touring together in 2014.  They recently released their first CD, Old Songs, New Hats.

We hope you will be there to welcome these two outstanding musicians to their first Jenkins' House Concert. For details and reservations please contact Sandy at
