His CD Summer to Snowflakes reached #27 on the national Folk-DJ airplay chart and was named Best Solo CD in Limelight Magazine's 2010 Readers' Poll. Terry's songs have won the USA Songwriting Competition and the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest.

Called "one of the best singers of her generation" by Christine Lavin, Mara Levine creates beautiful interpretations of folk songs. Nominated by Ron Olesko in 2009 for the Suzi Wollenberg Folk DJ Showcase, her debut CD, Mara's Gems, ranked #52 on the Folk DJ chart that year. Since then, Mara has had two #1 songs on the monthly chart -- her version of Bob Franke's 'Straw Against the Chill,' with Joe Jencks, and her arrangement of Paul Simon's 'Leaves That Are Green,' with Gathering Time.
