Foxfire Affair

Friday, October 11 at 7pm - Downtown Friday Nights Summer Concert Series at Wenzel Plaza

We close out our Summer Series at the Wenzel Family Plaza with Marshfield favorites the foxfire affair!

Daniel and Claire make up the acoustic duo, "The Foxfire Affair." These multi-instrumentalists entertain with an acoustic guitar, mandolin, cajon, and other instruments to complement their varied musical selections. While trading off lead vocals and harmonies, they’ll span several centuries of music playing everything from Irish Traditionals to Sea Shanties, American Folk to Rock, and a touch of original material. Not only are they married to one another but also to their craft. They love performing and sharing music with others.
